The Grand Mural is 8×8 feet large, with 64, 12×12 inch squares, many of them painted by children and local keys community members. The initial design is flexible enough to accomodate the expressionism and skill level of many of the children who enthusiastically paint their section. The completed Mural will remain on view at the Botanical Gardens, but it’s permanent home is yet to be determined.

Amanda Johnson has created the initial design of the mural for the past 3 years.

This year the grand Dream Mural project was facilitated with David Briskin of Two Monkeys Fine Art, a boutique art gallery located at 518 Fleming which features oil paintings by Amanda Johnson. [email protected], 305-414-8396,
