During a month-long residency at New Art Center in Newton, I created an interactive mural with the help of students and visitors. Over 150 kids of all ages took part, drawing lines or shapes that I would respond to. The result was an insanely detailed and entertaining map of Newton according to our collective imaginations.
Section of mural showcasing the variety of lines and squiggles added by the participants. Some kids (and adults) would try and make their additions as seamless as possible, while others attempted to throw a wrench into the works with wild shapes and swirls! The end result was surprisingly harmonious.
Last day coloring party. Kids and parents invited to color in the mural.
