ON YOUR MARK (2000)

Artist
Lucy Blake-Elahi

Collection
City of Inglewood

Medium
Mural

Material
Painted ceramic tiles

This ceramic tile mural has been created by students from Harry A. Mier Center/Ability First under the supervision of artist Lucy Blake-Elahi. Despite all the challenges of working with the group of developmentally disabled kids and adults whose ages varied from 6 to 24 years old, the artist had them make drawings and paintings which became a background for the mural. The artist made a drawing to overlay inspired by the workshop. The four main portraits visible on the mural are each a representation of a different group of the youth that has been working on the project.

The approach succeeded in creating a vibrant piece of art that leaves a vivid mark on the community of Inglewood. It was one of the half dozen murals commissioned as part of the Inglewood Cultural Arts Project.
