Description

Adapted from artist Tim Gibbon's website: "Columbia Heights Is... / Columbia Heights Es..." is product of a mural painting class taught by Gibbons at the Latin American Youth Center Art + Media House.

The 117ft-long, 5ft-tall mural was primarily designed by the students. "The students took photos of Columbia Heights residents and asked them to describe their neighborhood. The photos were simplified and transferred on to the wall using a projection technique. We used stencils and spray paint to do the text of the mural. The students also made stencil self-portraits, next to which they put their hand prints and signatures." More about this piece at http://www.timgibbon.com/murals_columbia_hts_is.html
