|Should this school be shamed and refused funds?|
|Art starts to fill the corridors and transform the old white walls|
|Robert and his mom, a former school teacher, talk to us about the project|
|This is a Sacred Place by LeBo|
These pictures show works in progress. Most of the murals are still being completed. The artists are all donating a smaller work to be auctioned off on December 2nd. Musicians will play and 100% of the funds will go to the principal to personally hire an arts teacher (or two or three).
|In process of transformation!|
|Give voice to the arts|
Can you imagine the joy and pride the students will have once their school resonates with colors and images to transform the mind. The walls will educate and inspire. I applaud the principal and school board for taking a risk, and the neighborhood artists for giving their time, and visionaries like Robert who use art to try and make a difference.
We should all look forward to checking back with the school to see the next chapter where the student's works are being developed...
