artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond City Limits
City Limits is a multi-dimensional sculptural wood mural. Our young people based their composition on the words and imagery contained in their individual narratives and poetry, with a primary focus being what they could see from the windows of their world and at the street level everyday. Their anxieties, hopes, musings and desires all manifesting as the finer texture of the larger skyline and sky as well as the wide open space of the larger street and individual windows looking on to it. Our young people worked very hard and successfully handled unfamiliar tools and materials to create a unique and multi-faceted project not previously attempted.
