We Are a Community of Knowledge

Project Description

The mural is inspired by the participant's ideas developed after the community partners' presentation. It conveys the notions of the importance of education, sports and art at PS 282 by using specific symbolism in order to create a narrative that reflects upon the proposed goals. The visual literacy process was very rich with a great variety of ideas. The design shows the selected elements out of that wide array of images.
The mural works as a whole in a narrative that can be read from left to right. The left of the wall is adjacent to the street and on the far right, the wall encounters the sports playground of the school. The mural reflects a progression between the neighborhood and its highlights to transform into a sports themed landscape.
At the center of the wall there is a door that we have used and respected for what it is. It stands as a symbol of inclusion and openness.
