About “Archways” – The Trestle Mural Project:
Garin Baker was selected to paint “Archways,” a Trompe L’oeil, three-dimensional historical composition 22’ by 220’ long, depicting five of Newburgh’s architectural treasures of the past, present and future: Washington’s Headquarters, Broadway, Downing Park, the Dutch Reformed Church, and the Crawford House. The “Archways” mural was completed and dedicated on November 3, 2007. This mural has received local, regional and national attention, through regional television, regional and national publications, as well as thousands of visitors. Tourists from all over the world have come to Newburgh to see this mural. As a result, Orange County has been highlighted in the art world and tourist industry. Visitors engage local residents in conversation about the sites depicted in the mural and other historical arts and places throughout the county. The first three arches are maintained with ongoing fundraising, and encompass most of the trestle wall. The arches depicting the Dutch Reformed Church and the Crawford House are currently non-existent. Trestle Inc. is raising money for painting that section of the trestle wall. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
