About Sunshine and Shadow
Artists Beverly Fisher and Kaitlin Pomerantz kicked off the Environmental Justice Initiative effort with two botanical arts installations involving teens from Mastery Charter enrolled in Mural Arts Art Education Program. Community and school volunteers participated at key intervals providing support and feedback in the development of the projects.
Fisher led students in an investigation of botanical imagery, culminating in a block-long mural on the facade of a neighborhood daycare center, based on sunflower growth patterns and the dynamism of the Fibonacci number sequence. Students assisted Fisher to complete the mural during some of summer’s 2013 hottest days.
