"Art Forms Change was created by students at GED Plus High School. The mural celebrates the students experience as first generation Americans. During the research phase, the students studied the modern griot or storyteller and shared their own hopes for achieving success during a series of peer-to-peer interviews. These conversations examined language, class, culture, and race in order to better understand the immigration experience and the defining and blending of culture. The mural is framed by two students on either side. One listens to music, a symbol that particularly resonated with the students. The other, a young woman, proudly wears a dashki-patterned shirt. The students used patterns from textiles and the maps of their countries of origins as a background to the image.
