I transformed a classroom into a MultiCultural Center for Sacred Heart University in Fairfield CT. The exterior and interior walls are transformed into an exciting graphic montage of photography and quotes to inform, educate and engage students and faculty and the SHU community about racial, cultural and religious diversities including, diverse behaviors, cultural assumptions, values, patterns of thinking, and communicative styles. The wall design, engages and immerses the viewer into "multiculturalism" with inspirational quotes from Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa to name a few.
