Ellis Walter Ruley Park: Norwich American Artist Park

 9/26/2020 @ 10:00 am

This park honors the legacy of Norwich native Ellis Walter Ruley, a self-taught African-American folk artist. Ruley’s paintings are evocative and often depict biblical or African folklore themes. Sadly, Ruley died here under mysterious circumstances in 1959. Two years later, fire destroyed the homestead along with many of Ellis’s paintings. Register by 9/23 by calling 860-887-1695 Ext. 116.
