Museum Of Urban Art Mural

Dec 17, 2010 | Blog

GBM is pleased to announce the unveiling of a 3-part mural depicting Hope, Love and Unity produced by the Museum of Urban Art (MUA). While the official unveiling took place during the GBM Open House on Tuesday, November 9th, the project began over a year and a half ago. Rose Jones, then co-chair of the Direct Services Work Group, knew of the Museum and the story behind its founding. Due to the loss of a son to street violence, Charlena Jackson was inspired to provide other options for city youth. The mural project grew out of a desire to make GBM’s waiting area more comfortable and inviting. After the walls were painted by volunteers from Holy Infant of Prague Catholic Church, the “new” walls needed new art. Thanks to the three artists and the MUA the lovely mural now brightens our walls. GBM is producing note cards of the art for sale throughout the year.
