Designed by a talented team of High School for Arts and Business students, “The Seed of Diversity” illustrates the diversity of the neighborhood of Corona, a vibrant community which is home to multi-generational families representing a multitude of cultures, nationalities, and ethnicities. The mural was installed on the side of Food Bazaar Supermarket, adding a conversation around food diversity and how to support it into the fabric of the design.
The mural design is anchored by an image of an elder, knitting a quilt, illustrating the tight knit nature of the neighborhood. In the middle of the mural image is a baby designed to evoke a seed with roots emerging from it. Two large hands move to embrace the baby, representing the community taking care of its future. A dragon in the shape of a subway train gives further shape to the composition.
