“The Explosion of Wonder” was created through a partnership with Pathways College Preparatory School during spring 2014. The collaborative mural design process engaged youth artists in a hands-on exploration of the many diverse pathways to success in life. Through a series of engaging brainstorming workshops, the students discussed how each of them can view the world around them as their own personal "blueprint" for success. This ideas was carried into the mural design, in which a blueprint acts as a guide for participants to achieve their dreams and aspirations. The mural image emphasizes that each student's blueprint is her or her own, just as each person's future is his or her own to create and pursue.
The mural is located on the fourth floor of the school in its computer lab and library.
