Students Create Mural Representing the Northwest Community

Around 100 students came together to create Northwest's first mural guided by a mural artist Mr. Galaz. Northwest Mural

This was a combination of Techniques for Tough Times, Latinos in Action and Go Girlz along with an after-school group. 

 

Artist Statement

 

Rose Park is our home. This is where we grew and continue to grow strong.

 

Inspired by Tupac's poem "The Rose that Grew from Concrete," the Northwest mural represents our community. The rose (in the shape of a heart to represent love) is growing from concrete (made up of signs, symbols, images and words that represent the student body). The rose growing from concrete represents our strength and that of the Rose Park community. At the top, students are holding the peace chain (symbolizing unity) up to the cosmos representing the limitless potential we all have. The designs throughout the mural represent the beautiful cultures and the diversity of our student body to show that everyone has a place here at Northwest.

 

Although the mural is its own masterpiece, the process is what brought it all together—brought us all together. We learned to work together and bring different ideas together. We had to accept the changes through the process along with accepting the finished piece. When we look at our mural, we see our community; we feel a sense of community; we feel a part of our community—Rose Park.
