Description

“Shooting For the Stars…not each other” is a remarkable 30 foot by 30 foot mosaic mural designed and installed by native DC muralist Cheryl Foster, who was commissioned by the DCCAH in 2000. The mural, made up of tile, glass beads, and mirror embellishments, depicts three young people from the Washington Highlands neighborhood who are “soaring through the sky in search of boundless opportunities,” according to Foster. The project included the neighborhood youth, who assisted the artist a great deal in creating the mural. “Shooting for the Stars” was a response to the community’s expressed wishes to display an uplifting and exuberant message for the area’s youth, and the result was precisely that.
