In mid-October, Sacred Arts Research Foundation with partners the Graham Ave. Business Improvement District, P.S. 257, Golden Drum, A.U.M., M.A.I.S.C, and the Borinquen Plaza Community Center North Brooklyn YMCA united to create a collaborative mural. Craig Anthony Miller was the lead artist and 500 students of P.S. 257 were among those who helped lay down paint.  The mural includes a portrait of, Dora Cohen, who survived the Holocaust and was a staff member of P.S. 257 for 20 years. The mural has been completed and located on the south side of Cook Street off of Graham Avenue.
