Description of



Mural designed and fabricated in collaboration with Frankford Friends Elementary School.

This mural symbolizes the garden of intergenerational healing– both individually and as a community. With the guidance of ancestral revolutionary figures, this mural is both a prayer and gesture of gratitude for our human ability to inspire one another in our cycles of growth.
