Let the Light Shine In

Martin Luther King Day 2010. What could be more fitting for this gray blustery day than the radiant faces of Jalisa and Stephanie at Gateway Charter High School? Another Josef Norris collaborative work, it's adjacent to the Sign of Hope mural commissioned by Gateway on Geary between Scott and Steiner to help students heal after someone was shot on the school steps. Details of their lives are painted on individual tiles put together to form their faces (you'll have to get out of your car or off the bus to really see them). Their steady, confident gaze conveys a sense of faith in their future. I'm feeling warmer already.
