New youth-led mural unveiled celebrates Govans
Wednesday Aug 11th, 2021
There may be road construction. We may be wearing masks. But nothing could dampen the energy at York Road and 43rd Street, where youth working with BOPA’s Art @ Work program unveiled a new mural celebrating the Govans neighborhood.
Over the last 6 weeks the youth canvassed neighborhood residents, and then worked with professional artists (lead: Iandry Randriamandroso, intern: Desire Thaniel) on this project. York Road Initiative/Loyola University Maryland was the community partner.
“Together Govans” celebrates love and community. According to the team it represents togetherness and care for each other. It is the 10th Art@Work mural installation supported by the Department of Planning's INSPIRE program. The project was supported to align with the rebuilding of the Walter P. Carter Building.
Youth apprentices included Kiyan Reid, Antoine Padonou, Jamya Edwards, Sherrill Richardson, Ameila Henry, Nukieah Brooks, and Kashae White.
