During May Term 2018, the artists/ teachers from Walls of Hope
collaborated with fifteen students from Mary Baldwin University and Professor Roderic Owen (Rodrigo) , and twenty five children, ages 6 to 14, part of the Boys and Girls Club, to paint a mural at the Booker Washington Community Center in Staunton, Virginia.
The participating young artists decided that the mural should focus on the life under water, most specifically, life in the deep sea.
The mural was painted on an existing interior wall at Booker T. Washington Community Center. There are mermaids and hidden treasures: there are octopi, fish and sea creatures, dolphins and even a sank ship.
The young artists from the Boys and Girls Club, in collaboration with MBU students and Walls of Hope artists created a marvelous rendering of under and above water.
Thank you, Permeable Borders 2018!!!!!
