I have painted several murals at the children’s museum. Each mural was specifically designed to compliment the room and exhibits they represent. These murals range from small 2 – 4 foot murals up to over 30 foot murals.
The forest mural (over 30 ft long) is one of the largest in the museum. In the room representing peace for the environment, this mural is a featured showpiece that is a backdrop to the sitting space in the room where children can learn about peace for the environment.
African Market Mural
The African market mural compliments the exhibit that teaches kids about where food comes from within Africa, specifically Zambia. The mural showcases the different types of food and products that one would find in an African street market. Baskets, bowls, fruits and vegetables. The mural is also complimented by a structure to expand and immerse the exhibit area with similar wood framing that would be used in a real marketplace.
The mural around the fort represents the space around the fort and features different symbolisms of peace. The hot air balloons show different symbols of peace and when children climb into the fort, they can use spyglasses to find the different symbols of peace within the mural and in other murals around the room.
Desert Cairn Mural
This desert themed mural featuring cairns (stacks of rocks from large to small) represents peace for self. There are also other symbols of peace in the mural that children can find from the fort on the other side of the room.
This mural features a garden and farm area that compliments the exhibit about where healthy food comes from. Another portion of the peace for self room, this mural will include an exhibit where children can interact with tablets to learn more about natural food production.
