Public art serves many purposes. This school in Liberia served as a medical center during the Ebola crisis and was essentially wrecked by fearful and angry people.

Now it has been cleaned and returned to its original purpose as a school. An artist from Baltimore, working with a local team in Liberia has turned into a gem of public art, a place for both the students and the community to cherish. I will be featuring it in my book “Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life” as an example of how art helps communities to recover from traumatic experiences.

If you know of other good examples, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to let me know about it.

READ…REFLECT…SHARE…SUPPORT PUBLIC ART IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
