Ch-ch-ch-changes have come to the stairwells for the W. Dale Clark Main Library.
Six high school students developed an art concept and design for the walls by working with mentors Steve Walsh and Gerard Pefung. The two different murals “combine inspiration from the written word and books, and from the visual vocabulary of street art,” said Weston Thomson, education manager at the Kent Bellows Studio and Center for Visual Arts.
The young artists worked on bringing the concepts to reality. The contemporary, urban art designs of the stairwells feature a scroll of great thoughts, winding its way up the stairs into the library and a graffiti-inspired representation of reading and learning.
