High school students attending The Waldorf School of San Diego were painting a large, colorful mural in City Heights today!
I swung by the corner of University Avenue and Wilson Avenue this afternoon to see how their public art project is progressing.
The Waldorf School has teamed up with the organization Love City Heights to spread culture and beauty and positive messages in this east San Diego community! I’m told more murals might be forthcoming!
This particular mural was designed by members of the school’s Social Justice Club.
The inspiration is American author Audre Lorde. According to Wikipedia: “As a poet she is best known for technical mastery and emotional expression, as well as her poems that express anger and outrage at civil and social injustices she observed throughout her life. Her poems and prose largely deal with issues related to civil rights, feminism, lesbianism, illness and disability, and the exploration of black female identity…”
I observed that lots of students have participated in creating the mural.
Each hand, holding a paintbrush, has spread human kindness.
I checked out the completed mural a couple days later!
