The Project

We Are Mountain is a Mural project by Brooke Armstrong and Jazen Reuss that invites the Saranac Lake and North Country communities to create a mural. A Mountain, made of many layers of sediment, symbolizes the people and parts that make it what it is: strong, solid and lush. Reuss will hold bead making workshops throughout the year to make beads with the community. Armstrong will hold a workshop on how to assemble the mural as well as have open artist hours for the community to see the construction of the mural between June 3-17th, 2024. All events are free and open to the public.
