Under the art organization A Wall Mural Projects initiative and in collaboration with the Dunbar Elementary School in Wynwood, Miami, an ambitious program to bring art to new generations keeps growing on campus. The mission statement of “A Wall Mural Project” makes it clear that this collective of artists is interested in planting the “art bug” early – and preferably in the environment of formal education – with the Dunbar school committed to highlighting the importance of the arts in general as crucial to pupils’ intellectual development.
Let’s hope that Florida Governor DeSantis has bigger fish to fry (or mice) and leaves these mural programs in the schools alone. The trend toward devolution in American schools has been sad to see in recent years. In the meantime, check out the cool walls at Dunbar Elementary.
