Enjoy the finished PS 102 mural, all 875 square feet of color, detail, and “Welcome” in 43 languages.
Not a bad representation of the original idea that emerged when the PTA Arts Committee reviewed 100 student submissions and layered six student recommendations on February 16. Following is the blog post that documented the original concept.
An Idea Emerges
As the PTA Arts Committee reviewed more than one hundred submissions on February 16, the image above emerged as one of the mural ideas by layering several student drawings.At the foreground is a solitary student walking towards school, a new comer to the community. He is greeted by a classmate; all it takes is one student to begin helping another feel welcome. Then heâ€™s embraced into the larger student body, which is part of a wonderfully diverse neighborhood, within a global city, in an interconnected world.Time â€” and your input â€” will tell if this becomes the final concept. What do you think?
Thanks, Sam, for staying true to the students’ collective vision and empowering 400 of us to translate that vision together.
