COOPERSTOWN—The Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the completion of a mural project on the back of its cottage with a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Friday, November 18 at 10:30 a.m. The mural, created by artist Kelcy Kimmerer, was an initiative of the chamber’s 501(c)3 arm, The Cooperstown Foundation, to help build the presence of public art in Cooperstown.

“Art has always been a big part of my life since I was a kid,” Artist Kelcy Dakota said. “I went to art school in NYC and it’s always been a natural part of my being.” Ms. Dakota is doing two commissioned pieces right now, one at The Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce and one at Mohican Flowers, both in Cooperstown. “These are the largest murals I’ve ever done!”

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Telly in her element: Telly couldn’t have been happier than to get on the ice and snow that fell on Cooperstown last week. The two-year-old Bernedoodle enjoyed playing and relaxing on the snowbank in front of her mom’s shop on Main Street. Jen Howard, owner of Cooperstown Classics, said, “Telly lives for this weather. It’s her favorite time of year!” The good girl is full-grown, topping out at 75 pounds.
