Recalling the creation of the mural “Destiny Manifesting.” #youthart

My students and I started this mural in the art therapy room at Keith Lynn Alternative Secondary in North Vancouver in 2009… and on July 5, 2011, I dragged it to Kirkstone Park, North Vancouver…

The mural was inspired by Doze Green‘s Galeria de la Raza, 1999, as found in the book Street Art San Francisco- Mission Muralismo:

Here’s a photo journey of our interpretation!  Thanks one and all who contributed to the piece!

  

      

On October 28, 2011, the mural was donated to YOUTHCO.
