To commemorate the city of Songdo earning the position to have the UN's new office for the Green Climate Fund based out of the Upper School art students will be working with a well-known mural artist from the United States to create a mural for the city of Songdo (Incheon). Dave Loewenstein, along with his assistant, will be coming to Korea April 21-30th to paint a mural in Central Park that is incorporate historical imagery like the crane. It will also incorporate in a abstract way the Chadwick International's Core Values which are honesty, fairness, responsibility, respect, and compassion.
In 2005 a group of my high school art students from Topeka High worked with Dave Loewenstein to recreate one of Aaron Dougla's murals. Douglas was a part of the Harlem Renaissance movement and originally from Topeka, Kansas. The mural they recreated was Douglas's painting called Aspects of Negro Life: From Slavery Through Reconstruction.
Dave worked with my kids on the mural process and when he comes to Korea in April he will be doing the same thing. Below are some images from 2005 of my art students going through this mural process with Dave to show what my present art students will be doing:
