Lead artist Richard Ward designed a colorful graphic mural based on traditional African geometric patterns for the Teens With a Purpose Vivian C. Mason Center on Olney Rd. The mural reads “What’s The Word”, taken from spoken word performer of the 70’s and 80’s Gil Scott-Heron (from the song “Johannesburg”). Richard worked with summer camp students and TWP leaders to complete the project.
