The HeArt Project
Project Area: CT-Historic Core
Project: Broadway Roll Down Door Murals
Project Location: 445 S. Broadway
Project Type: CRA/LA Initiated
As a part of HeArt Project's year-round arts program, a three-week mural workshop for 60 high school students was supported through a grant. These workshops led to the creation of a mural on three roll-down doors at Broadway and 5th Street. Three well-known visual artists, Diane Gamboa, Leo Limon, and Yolanda Gonzalez, worked with students from continuation high schools to complete the mural. The mural interprets the theme "imagine culture." Painting took place between June 3-17, 1996 at the old Newberry building.
