Dedicated October 17th
Together with community volunteers Mensah completed his asphalt art project on Bland St. in the Five Point Neighborhood off Sewells Point Rd. in just 2 days.
Through the use of West African Adinkra symbols, Mensah incorporates ideas of “abundance, affluence, giving back and the idea of time changing and embracing it and being a part.” Flowers are spaced 10 ft. apart in accordance with social distancing rules for group activities.

The #asphaltart project was made possible through a Bloomberg Asphalt Art Initiative Grant the City of Norfolk & Norfolk Arts received together with the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Virgina.
