This mural was one project that I felt we were able to involve community out-reach. The educational component was to teach children about endangered species. The Fish flow along and transition into the Reeds and night section. We visited schools taking clay slabs and found objects. We invited kids to make fish shapes with textures made from cast offs. Anything we could think of even the bottom of shoes became beautiful patterns on the fish. When visiting the wall you will find numerous textures from kitchen tools, shoes, jewelry, to auto parts and even toys. (click on the image for more scenes of “The Mississippi River”).
