[SFMOMA has commissioned renowned artist Kerry James Marshall to create two murals for the museum's Haas Atrium. For over 30 years, Marshall has explored stories of racial identity, the Civil Rights movement, and unsung histories in his work. In response to Marshall's works, fifteen teens from three Oakland high schools are designing and producing a collaborative mural, in Town Park at DeFremery Park, focusing on the themes of silenced histories and storytelling. We’re blogging about it here on Saturdays.]
We’re really digging showing the artistic process of creating this mural through pictures posted on the blog every week. So here’s the story of last Saturday’s session, seen through the eyes of Nile.
Thanks to Nile for sharing his photography skills with us for this week’s post. Today we hope to finish the entire underpainting and begin to build up the layers of color. And a special treat: Fred will be grilling burgers for lunch.
