FARMINGTON — Seventeen-year-old Missy Brady spent about 20 hours making a mural for a children's playhouse that resembles an old-fashioned jail cell at the Richard E. Caton III Memorial Station.
She began the community service piece as a junior at Mt. Blue High School and finished it as an incoming senior. School resource officer Bridgette Gilbert, a Farmington policewoman, asked her to make the mural for the playhouse, she said.
Brady, of Farmington, her art teacher, Roger Bisaillon, and her father, Steven Brady, gathered at the station Friday to deliver the mural to police.
Brady's mural depicts Mickey Mouse as the police officer, Pluto as the police dog and Donald Duck as an inmate behind bars.
Brady plans to study art and photography after graduation.
“It's kind of a way out, a stress reliever,” Missy Brady said of her art. “I started when I was really little. I started when I was 7. My art teachers were a huge inspiration, all the way from elementary school to high school.”
