Chase Peters and I are shown here making a Turneresque sky. Eighth-grader Chase Peters works with visiting artist Bruce Davidson, who was helping Bromfield School students create a triptych celebrating the Chinese calendar’s Year of the Dragon.
A Mural for a Great Kid by a Stellar Volunteer Team
In early December 2009 while working on the Bolton Public Library Children’s Room Mural I was asked if I knew of any artists who would volunteer to transform a child’s room. Brendan 6 years old, diagnosed with brain cancer a few eeks earlier. He is OBSESSED with fish so it was agreed we would surprise him with an undersea world. He went away with his family for three days to Florida to see his sister in a cheerleading competition.
I sent an email out to artists and assistants and got an immediate and heartening response at a very busy time of year.
I made a colorful plan in Photoshop for 4 walls and a ceiling, bought paints and we got to work.
2 all nighters and a long day later the awesome crew finished what was an ambitious undertaking that made a fun environment for a boy facing hardship.
Just a few pictures here and see this link for a slide show of the process and results. Thanks to all who made this a reality.
Tyler Richard, “The Gentleman of the Kid Industry” made a blue clay Owl with parakeet feathers for wings for Marnie and for me a Porcupine with tiny twigs for quills and at my request did them at 30 degrees angle. I drew this picture of him and made a clay bas relief of him with a yellow feather for his bangs. All in all a great afternoon at the ArtSpace studio of Sue and Gwen.
