The new Jazz mural was completed yesterday by the youth from Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club-Adams Park Unit.
The students are currently working on the design of the third mural, featuring famous St. Louis African Americans, with help from local artist Grace McCammond from Signature Arts. The projected painting of the next mural will be at the end of June 2011.
Kiana Joyce, Herbert Hoover Teen Director stated, “Two to three days a week the students worked on the jazz mural, which they also designed. On painting days the students were really eager to get out and work on the mural. Throughout the entire process all of the participants were very proud to work on the project and to help beautify their neighborhood and bring more public art to the Grove.”
Grace McCammond added, “Working with the youth from Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club on this latest mural project was extremely rewarding. The participants did an amazing job on designing the mural and saw the entire project through from beginning to the end.”
