Nims Middle School Murals
Artist and welder Matt Shanaghan artistically improved the schools community spaces by developing a design based off classic graffiti B-Boy characters from the break dancing graffiti culture. In the 1970’s B-boying, a sub-set of Hip Hop Culture, created an environment that centered on street dance performance, and created one of the most artistic forms of its time.
Cosby Martin Hayes was invited by Matt to collaborate and painted the Trojan icon, representative of the school mascot.
As part of the KCCI 2021 Community Catalyst project goal to create more public art, KCCI’s 2021 Catalyst team coordinated for Title 1 Schools to provide the funding for this art project. To see more pictures, click HERE.
