Date: 2011 Type: Mural Collection: ARTree Placement: German Autohaus building
Description: The ARTree, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance art education for children in the Santa Clarita Valley, created a giant photo mural titled “The Ever Changing Wall.” The mural is located on the German Autohaus building on Railroad Avenue in Newhall. The piece is 130 feet wide and 18 feet tall with faces of 13 local children who are members of the Newhall Community Center or the Boys and Girls Club of the Santa Clarita Valley. Their faces were photographed by teenagers from the Newhall Community Center, then enlarged and printed in black and white on wallpaper. Each face is approximately 12 feet tall. The mission of this project is to celebrate the children in our community as well as to provide new learning experiences for them.
