Art Majors Honored at Girard College MLK Day of Service Ceremony

Middle School Art Majors were honored today at the opening celebration for Philadelphia's 25th Annual MLK Day of Service. In attendance were Mayor Jim Kenney, Global Citizen president Todd Bernstein and the head of Mural Arts Jane Golden.  Students worked with Mural Arts artist Nile Livingston on a "voting rights" themed painted panel. Five other schools from the Philadelphia region also completed a mural panel. All 6 pieces were sewn together to create a 30' x 5' mural that will be the centerpiece of this years' event at Girard College. The students did a great job with their mural and had a fun time at the press conference!
