The Working in Progress paint by number mural is complete and on display at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. In conjunction with the Freedom Center’s exhibition Passages to Freedom, works by Stephen Marc, 4/27-8/31/2013, I along with my creative team of artists, created an interactive work of art in the form of a paint by number mural that museum goers painted on Saturday May 4th and 11th. I would like to personally thank the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for all their support with this project. I would like to also thank my team of artists, Christian Harrson (Cincinnati State), Rita Beckman (McNicholas High School) , Previn Noble (Walnut Hills High School), and Visionaries and voices artists Barbara Riddle and Diamond Snowden who all worked with me through the various stages of the project. Most of all, I would like to thank friends, family and the general public for lending their creative touch to the painting. Stop by the Freedom Center from now till September 2nd to see the painting.
