In 1992, students from Mays Middle School in Goulds, FL, painted a mural that depicted what they heard, saw and felt before, during and after Hurricane Andrew. Tomorrow the iconic, 48-foot-long “Love Can Build Anything” Hurricane Andrew Mural will be donated to the International Hurricane Research Center (IHRC) and will be on display the IHRC’s main office on the third floor of the MARC building at FIU. One of the panels is signed by President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton.
In attendance will be representatives from the Center for Folk and Community Art; artists Dena Stewart and Stewart Stewart; and Mays Middle School alumni who painted the mural.
The donation ceremony will take place at 4 p.m. at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum.
