"Hope, Health, and Home" was created by the Lang Mural Action class at The New School in partnership with BRC to celebrate the organizations new building on 25th Street. The class researched, conceptualized, and created cohesive designs for three acrylic on canvas panels. The three panels are unified by a cohesive visual language and are based on BRCs tagline of Hope, Health, and Home. In Hope, keys represent the possibility of owning a home or living in an apartment, one of the goals for many of the homeless residents who rely on the services that BRC provides. In Health, a group of people sit around a table sharing a meal, supporting one another and gazing out through an open window onto the New York cityscape. In Home, a tree grows from the center of an apartment, books at its roots representing the roots of knowledge. The tree symbolizes growth, stability and shelter. The entire BRC community, including friends, neighbors, clients, and staff, were invited to a special celebration to help paint each canvas and inaugurate the new facility.
