A Project To Promote Cultural & Community Harmony Through Art : Fredericksburg, VA
Various materials, colors, textures and cultures have been combined to create this unified work of art, where one color and shape enhances the other and supports the affirming message NURTURE DIVERSITY and CULTIVATE HARMONY.
The mirrors in the mural reflect their viewers, who in turn, become an integral part of the mosaic.
The items embedded in the side borders have cultural and/or ethnic significance to their donors. To find out more about these donated objects view the "Stories from the Wall" booklet (PDF).
This project serves as a testimony to the importance of recognizing our interconnectedness to one another – both individually and as a community, while also respecting our differences.
