The piece was designed, created and/or installed by high school students from throughout the City of Houston, students from Rice University, Donald Collins (Founder of Love is Studios & TAPH Artist Partner), TAPH artist participants/partners, M.O.C.A.H. artist team and other artists in the community. On February 24, men and women from the Bread of Life community were invited to make their mark on the mural by adding a colorful handprint to the "Tree of Life" portion of the mural. The day the community added their mark to the mural was filled with joy, happiness and life! One participant said, "It was happy out here today on the corner of Jackson and Gray. It was a fun day."
Epiphany in All Eyes is a story of creation, unity and journey. Our paths through life are different, yet our journey is universal. Innocently, we face futures filled with opportunities and challenges. Transcending our difference and initing on common ground we see answers to the questions of life, gaining wisdom and knowledge along the way. In the end, we share what we have learned and reflect back to see just how far we have come.
We thank The Boniuk Center for funding this project and inviting the Bread of Life to partner in the creative process, as well as host the mural. This has added color and beauty to our midtown Houston community, as well as helped to foster the vision of creating beautiful art that can be view and appreciated by people from all walks of life.
If you were unable to make the event, we encourage you to drive by to see this phenomenal piece of public art at the Bread of Life.
