Public art site at the school...pre project!

An actual view outside the school window

We will install 6 different windows throughout this long hallway, plus an extra one for the project title.

I wrote the following project description for our promotional postcard:
This project [title in English and Russian to come soon!] builds upon a recurring theme in my own artwork: combining multiple views in one picture. The project will transform a corridor in the school through inserting painted windows on its walls. The "windows" will be made of wood with three-dimensional frames carved and decorated in the style of traditional Russian windows, alluding to the importance of historic preservation. Each window will show different interior or exterior scenes that reflect the responses of the children at the school when asked, "what would you like to see inside and outside your windows?" The windows will touch upon such themes as neighborhood and family life, the importance of learning, and the potential of imagination.
