The present “Yield” sign will be replaced by a red “Stop” sign.

“We realized that the people we really wanted to address were young people,” Lasseur said in an interview with The Lakeville Journal. He described young people as being “alienated and disconnected from public life.”

On Saturday night, Jan.7, despite the snow-covered country roads and low temperatures, a sizable crowd battled their way through the wintry weather to cozy up with a view of Woodruff’s arresting, atmospheric, disquieting work.
