(I just had to include this photo of Claudia's mom and daughter...how sweet are they?)
What a special treat to see the wonderful mosaics and mural artwork at Roosevelt High School today. I am so proud of my sister (art teacher) who has worked so hard with artists Greta McLain and Claudia Valentino, students and staff to transform the main entrance of the high school into a wonderful diverse explosion of color and light and inspiration for all who walk through the doorway.
I can only imagine what a challenge it was to work around all the pipes, fire alarm, doors and windows, corners and vents...but they did so quite beautifully. I couldn't be happier for them, it is quite an accomplishment and they worked on it right up until today's opening...the grout barely had enough time to dry. If you live locally (Minneapolis), it is so worth a visit. Visitors are more than welcome.
