As parking space at AMP is limited, the first 20 cars that register for this tour/rally will receive premier parking at AMP for the lunch and presentation. Others will park a short walk away, with security guards minding the cars during lunch.
Here's your chance to enjoy a visit to The Paddock, a new world-class auto restoration shop which opened earlier this year in New Britain, owned by Michael and Pat Donnelly, and lunch with racing personality Sam Posey while viewing a five-story mural celebrating the workers of America in Winsted. The artist responsible for this mural is Ellen Griesedieck, who just happens to be married to Sam Posey.
The tour will take you through the beautiful Connecticut countryside, with a pit stop halfway on the route, and end up at the American Mural Project for lunch, where you can view the progress of the installation of some of the pieces to this 3-D, five-story-high mural celebrating the nation's work force.
Once fully installed, the American Mural Project (AMP) will be the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world. It will stand 120 feet long by 48 feet high by 6 feet deep, and will depict a range of professions, from construction workers to surgeons, teachers to truck drivers, presented larger than life in order to awaken people to the value of work happening all around them every day.
