Writing on the Wall
Wood, Permanent Markers and Paint Sticks

This photo details a student who expressed his thoughts using the style of graffiti. After a number of days of participation, the walls came alive with expressions of different colors, sizes and shapes. People stopped not only to write on the wall, but many times to read the diverse ideas displayed. The wall became a call and response work of art, as comments inspired others to leave feedback.
