artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond "Breathe," a Mural by Girls in Spectrum Detention


In the fall of 2012, the girls at Spectrum Detention worked together to transform one of the rooms on the detention unit into a peaceful haven that features an image of a calming landscape. After weeks of sketching, color mixing, painting, and final touch-ups, the girls at Spectrum finished a beautiful mural that decorates a room on the detention unit. Thank you to the Spectrum detention staff for setting aside a space and helping to make this project happen! The mural brightens the space and gave the girls an opportunity to shape their living space in detention. It was also a great collaborative experience that required teamwork and cooperation!
