BAYONNE, NJ – The municipal building is a bit more attractive after an artist designed and painted his vision of Bayonne and donated it to the city.

The large mural was unveiled on July 28 at the Bayonne Community Museum on Broadway and presented to Mayor James Davis the next day at a ceremony at Bayonne City Hall on Avenue C. The piece hangs in the mayor’s office there.

The artwork features the layout of the city, with the Bayonne Bridge in the foreground and the New York City skyline in the background.

It was designed and painted by Fernando Fernandez, with the assistance of Gloria Fernandez.

Other artists contributed to the artwork, including Bill Zbylut, who painted the mural's five highlight bubbles, church steeples and Staten Island waterfront, and Anthony Sienkiewicz, who painted the three Bayonne Medal of Honor recipients who are pictured.

This mural is dedicated to the Art Circle of Bayonne.
