In January I started working with a group of 10th graders at Locke High School in Watts. The administrators wanted to improve the school grounds while engaging the students throughout the process. They had identified one wall of the classroom building as the ideal spot for a mural. After meeting with the students to hear their thoughts on art and their school, I created the design for "Knowledge Moves Mountains". Over the last several weeks, the group of 10th graders and I cleaned, primed and painted the mural.
Bike riding in Long Beach just got a little more interesting... GriffinMade attends the unveiling of The Long Beach Depot for Creative ReUse public art bike rack. Sponsored by the City of Long Beach, the bike rack was designed and built by local artist Trace "Tres" Fukuhara of Pacific Wind Arts.
