It’s Art Renewal Day and You Are Invited!
If you haven’t had the pleasure of stepping foot into the historic building that houses Aki Kurose Middle School you might not know that the hallways are covered in inspirational murals. As you travel through the hallways you’ll notice that each mural speaks to a community value. On your way to the lunch room you’ll find Malcolm X speaking truth about the power of knowledge. When walking past the library you’ll see a piece inspired by Einstein that reiterates the role of the teacher.
But just like all things in this world these murals have aged and succumbed to the wear and tear of a well populated school. Some murals are chipping, where others are simply spelled wrong. It is a belief at Aki Kurose Middle School that if we respect our environment we are in turn respecting ourselves. It is our intention to create a culture of respect and care in our community by renewing our hallways. When we connect with our school we can connect with each other.
We invite you to be a part of our community by joining us in this special event at Aki Kurose Middle School!
For community volunteers we are offering half-day shift or a whole day shift. All shifts include lunch and ArtsCorps entertainment from 12pm – 1pm.
