photoblog image Education Wall 1992

Education Wall 1992

 

Made of sandblasted granites and stone colorants, these are details of public art by American artist Vernon Pratt. It is located in Raleigh on the west side of the Education Building of the State of North Carolina. Words are by writer Georgann Eubanks.

 

The wall appears in its entireity below.

 

Until recently this state had a nationally-acclaimed public education system. The veto-proof Republican legislature is changing that. I heard they may lose that supermajority in the November elections. Nothing would make me happier.

there are some wise words there, Larry. always a sad thing when education systems get systematically pulled down.
Larry Bliss: Politicians know nothing about education.

Now that is a very dignified form of ‘graffiti ‘, I love it.

I love this form of 'graffiti'. In Netherlands you see many walls filled with poems. I don't agree with the meaning "Learning in old age is writing on sand".
Larry Bliss: Thank you...

To be laughed at, or to be laughed with ...
By example and almost never by words.

Just some thoughts coming up on looking at your posting. Made me think - and that makes for an excellent post.
Larry Bliss: Thank you Louis...
