Saints project a gift to the neighborhood

Poor weather has delayed the completion of an art project at All Saints School that is quite literally a gift to the neighborhood. Last spring, the school joined the city of Hayward's beautification and anti-graffiti project. The school received permission to paint the newly installed utility boxes on E Street with pictures of saints. A grant from the Lillian Black Arts Foundation supplied some of the supplies. Artist Nina Kempf stenciled images of saints — including Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Catherine of Siena, Rose of Lima, Jerome, Ignatius, Dominic and Francis, as well as Our Lady of Guadalupe and Kateri Tekakwitha — onto the surfaces. Each student in the school has had the opportunity to paint. When the weather permits, Kempf will put on the finishing touches, including the names of each saint, Principal Jennifer Diaz said.
