Description

This project was created by youth from Oak Hill and was led by Joel Bergner, an artist with a strong passion for working with youth who currently works at the Latin American Youth Center. As Ken’s Carry Out is Chinese cuisine, the mural highlights a popular image from Chinese culture: the crane. The crane is a symbol for longevity because of its exceptionally long life span, and in many legends, it also represents soaring spirits, happiness, and wisdom. The mural speaks as part of the abundant cultural diversity of Washington, D.C.
