Farmingville, NY – Recently, Councilwoman Jane Bonner was on-hand for the unveiling of the “Horseshoe Crab” mural painted on the handball court wall at Robert Miner/Rocketship Park in Rocky Point. The large-sized artwork was created by Rocky Point resident Steven Soltysik. The Rocky Point Rotary Club donated the funds to provide the artist with paint and materials needed to complete the mural. Rocketship Park is located on Hallock Landing Road, just north of Mark Drive in Rocky Point.
Councilwoman Bonner said, “This mural is a beautiful piece of art and a great addition to Rocketship Park. Horseshoe crabs are a very familiar sight on our north shore beaches, so it is a fitting subject for the handball wall mural. I thank the Rocky Point Rotary Club for sponsoring the mural and Steven Soltysik for sharing his artwork with the community.”
