artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond "Flower" - Collaborative Painting in acrylic on paper
Spectrum Detention Center, Dorchester, MA


Artistic Noise youth created a large-scale collaborative painting inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe's painting "White Flower On Red Earth." The painting is comprised of 48 8"x8" squares that were individually painted by the youth artists. Each youth artist painted several squares. The project was a great way to explore color mixing and texture in acrylic painting. This project also brought the beauty and serenity of nature into detention.
