QUESTION: Please help with my project on Jamaican murals

I am an undergrad Art History student at B*** College in New York. I came across an article you wrote for the Gleaner. Do you have any images of that mural?

QUESTION:
Hello,
I am an undergrad Art History student at B*** College in New York. I am taking a class on Mexican muralism; how those artists were ignored by the artistic canon largely. The second part of our class is going to look at other culture’s use of murals. I lived in Jamaica for a little while in 2000. I remember seeing murals and signage hand-painted, but am having trouble finding any images now. I want my final project to be on Jamaican murals, since their creative history is even more ignored than Mexico’s.

I came across an article you wrote for the Gleaner http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20090531/arts/arts6.html – Do you have any images of that mural?

Do you have any direction you can point me in for more possible murals that I can talk about in my project? I would really appreciate it.

Best,
Anmarie Foreseight

Dear Anmarie

Images are available at a cost by the photographer, or from the Gleaner’s archives at a cost.
Regarding the other details of your question.
1. Please see a photo of this mural at:

2. For other murals, I would love to know more about your foucs first. Why not think it over and leave a comment at the end of the above article and I will help you further.
There are beautiful murals at the children’s hospitals, around downtown kingston, at gas stations, at Jamaica house, at hospitals for example, but you need to detail your request, especially your themes per se.
All the best

Respect
Keep connected and communicating!
