The Metairie Business Development District (MBDD), Jefferson Chamber Foundation (JCF) & Fat City Friends invite the members of the Grace King community to attend the unveiling of 7 murals, measuring 56 linear feet, which 16 Grace King students painted during the Spring 2017 semester as part of the Talented Visual Arts Program.
The sixteen students from Grace King’s talented visual art program were chosen to participate in the project and spent months brainstorming, sketching, and revising their designs for the mural’s seven panels. Students chose to represent the people, animals and scenes that, in their opinions, make Fat City unique and memorable. Students worked in small groups and were each assigned a panel to complete, although they also carefully considered how the panels look together as one complete and cohesive design. The following are the students who are involved in the project: Maria Ballesteros, Syed Basit, Jezelle Burton, Crystal Chen, Chase Cunningham, Amber Drumm, Helana Gegenheimer, Demir Hajdarevic, Emily Kuylen, Ja’Diah McCray, Tiffany Perdomo, Elaina Profit, Anna Sanabria, L Speziale, Kelsea Trecek, and Xiao Zhang. These murals will be installed along the northeast corner of the Entergy substation located at Edenborn and West Esplanade as Jefferson Parish completed the Edenborn drainage project.
On Monday, August 28th around 3:30 PM, at the intersection of Edenborn and West Esplanade, community stakeholders will unveil the murals created by these gifted students.
