Barb Brimmerman's ESL students at Lewis & Clark Middle School designed and painted a mural entitled "Education: A Bridge to a New World" under the supervision of resident artist Bobbi Baltzer-Jacobo and Lewis & Clark art teacher Lynn Dingman.
The mural was the culminating activity for the unit of study: The Cog--My Place in American Society. The right side of the mural represents the Karen State and Kenya. The middle of the mural represents the Golden Gate Bridge with San Francisco in the background. The left side of the mural represents the Great Temple in Nepal, the rolling hills of the Karenni State, and a village in El Salvador. The young man in the middle with raised hands represents his newly found freedom.
