Pass to Present
"Pass to Present" is a mural installed in the Juvenile Justice Services Center in West Philadelphia in the summer of 2017. It was designed by Kien Nguyen. It features a quote from Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall: "None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns - bent down and helped us pick up our boots." I was the lead artist for this mural and painted almost all of what you see here.
