Child Haven is a last resort refuge for abandoned and abused Children. Prior to enhancing the corridor it was 2,000 square feet of blank wall space that frightened the children as they passed through it. The artist created a mural to cover the blank space and to put a smile on the children's faces.
To ease the transition of the kids into the campus was the main goal and it was achieved. More info here: http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/parks/services/Pages/child-haven-hope-corridor.aspx
The artist worked with Child Haven staff and the Clark County Public Art program to create murals that would have a positive impact.
I have managed over a 100 public art projects in the past ten years and this has been by far the most impactful, and positive project I have been a part of.
