Family, friends, and acquaintances of Skylar Sonn Tancredi, known to them simply as “Sky,” gathered this past weekend in the middle/high school cafeteria in Hastings to collaborate on “The Sky Mural,” a montage of clay tiles that honors and celebrates his life.
At the start of this weekend’s workshops, project coordinator Cliff Mendelson, a ceramic artist and founder of “Day in Clay,” a program that offers clay art classes to schools and students throughout the county, told everyone, “This mural is about defining him [Tancredi] by his attributes . . . not by how much you might miss him but by creating a tribute to who he is as a person.”
