Kenwood and Simeon high school students*, under the guidance of artists Rahmaan “Statik” Barnes and Andy Bellomo, are creating a new mural for our 87th Street Shop (737 E. 87th Street). The mural project is a collaboration designed to give area students a rewarding, real-world experience creating art while exploring the possibilities of this as a career.
The mural will feature kids and music with a POP of everyone’s favorite gourmet popcorn. The completed project is expected to be revealed in late June.
*Students are participating via After School Matters.
