The Printing Museum hosts "Changing Language, Changing Worlds" mural project block party
The Printing Museum will unveil the public mural project Changing Language, Changing Worlds for the exterior of its building. The museum engaged Lebanese graphic artist Pascal Zoghbi to design with local graffiti artist DUAL a graphic mural for the museum's exterior that will incorporate Arabic script, calligraphy and digital font-types. Textual components of the mural will also be translated into English.
This project, while serving to bridge communities, will also serve to bridge the divide between languages, written and spoken. The mural is intended to engage and possibly even challenge the museums mission, which is to promote, preserve and share the knowledge of printed communication and art as the greatest contributors to the development of the civilized world and the continuing advancement of freedom and literacy.
This mural block party consists of tunes by DJs Chris Meshak and Shermin Williams, food trucks and beverages courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Co.
