Millwood School’s upper school students, including Shelby Barton (above), gathered with families, teachers and friends last month to celebrate the unveiling of an art project entitled, “The Mural, 11 Personalities.” Located in the upper school lounge, the mural depicts symbolic images of students against realistic looking brick walls. During the unveiling, the students described their work on the mural and the imagery they chose to represent their lives. The project evolved during the study of local and international muralists with their art teacher, Chris Palmer.
