We designed a project for The Historic North West neighborhood that celebrated the musical history of the area. Louis Armstrong played at the Sunset Lounge in 1946. This is part of a series of murals that will help bring more foot traffic into the business zone by connecting cultural offerings to the Sunset Lounge. While doing this project, we did a lot of historical research on the area about the many world famous performers including Count Basie, BB King, and Ray Charles that played at the Sunset. . During the painting of the mural many residents stopped by to share stories and history about the area. Moreover, we also did historical research on early pioneers in the area including: Hazel Augustus, Warren Collie, Dr. Joseph Jenkins , Dr. Thomas Vickers, Dr. Thomas Leroy Jefferson and Augusta Savage

Kaleidoscope on the Square is a 330 ft fiber public art installation on a fence surrounding the old gas station on the corner of Broadway and Northwood Road. Because the land has to go through a fuel detoxification procedure before the land can be redeveloped, the WPB CRA wanted to use the space creatively and turn the gas station into an art installation. Street Art Revolution artist Eduardo Mendieta, Dahlia Perryman and Caron Bowman, transformed the fence into a colorful woven geometric pattern that shows how diverse elements become one "a kaleidoscope of color", much like the community. Each colorful thread, represents the energy, spirit and creativity of the community. “Kaleidoscope on the Square” will be on display for a year when it will be replaced with a new art exhibit for the public to enjoy. The project was sponsored by the West Palm Beach CRA .
