Community in Motion Mural/ Location Japan I have created many projects since this mural but recently I got the photo of the mural in Japan so I wanted to post it below. Recently Platform Art shared this photo of a Bicycle Mural I created with them in 2011 with children in the Lakeland community. This 16 foot handmade paper mural in 4 panels is filled with Bicycle Safety Messages. Before this mural was shipped to Japan it was displayed at City Hall in Lakeland Florida. (Photo below)
The Bicycle Mural was displayed in two United States Locations in Lakeland FL before being Displayed in Japan ( Artist with Mural)
Working in my studio in Passagrille Florida on the Bicycle Mural. There are 4 panels all handmade paper light weight and easy to ship to Japan. This mural is still on display in Japan.

Teamwork, creativity, just having fun= art! How I started the groups on the mural over many days, many layers, mixed media. The Artstacle course had Yoga, drawing, dance, street art tag that jacket, and more. This is how to build an interactive mural!
