SCPA Art Helps BizTown Take Off

Mural at Biztown
Students Chelsea Chavira, Erika Ruan, Tess Young Janelle Velazquez and Tashia Williams from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts have recently finished, along with artist Isaias Crow, a 40-foot by 14-foot mural at the McGrath Family JA Biztown facility.

The students worked through the Spring semester and their Summer vacation on the project, which was designed especially for BizTown.

Sponsored by the San Diego International Airport Commission, the mural celebrates travel in San Diego and around the world. The multi-panel, multi-leveled mural was designed in partnership between the student artists, guided and directed by Isaias Crow. It was painted on 4'x8' wood panels, creating a multi-dimensional sculptural mural.
