Wilmington Artist Terrance Vann worked with students at Douglass School in a semester-long project to design and install a mural for the school. The mural depicts scenes of young people, Vann’s signature style called Afro-surrealism, and contemporary street culture. The mural has been installed in the school hallway and was revealed to students, faculty and parents in late May as a positive way to end the school year.
“I am a Wilmington native, so to be able to work on a project such as this and share my art with the students at The Douglass School has been an enriching experience. The mural is Titled “A New Path” and I hope that the students can walk past the piece and feel that they can achieve anything! My art is all about connecting and uplifting and this project has been an honor to accomplish,” Vann said.
In November 2016 Vann also completed a large-scale project entitled “Divine Minds”, a 60 square foot mural located at 7th and Jefferson streets in Wilmington’s Creative District.
