Description

The centerpiece is an African/ African-American woman with eyes closed and large hoop earrings. Yellow background, landscape view of the Capitol. "Part of the The Georgia Avenue Global Mural, this piece is one of the five murals created along one of Washington, DC's main corridors, Georgia Avenue, as part of a grant-funded project that explored the city's cultural and social issues.

This particular mural is titled The Great African Migration, and portrays the immigration of people of the African Diaspora emerging into Washington's communities. Being a first generation American of Ethiopian descent, this painting reflects Helina's own personal narrative. The mural project was coordinated by artist Joel Bergner with funding through a grant from the DC commission on the Arts and Humanities." More at http://www.metaartist.com/murals.html
