Item details

"Urban World at the Crossroads" (acrylic on brick; 1997) is the combined work of master muralists John Pitman Weber and Bernard Williams, and the first project the two had worked on together.

The mural at Orr Academy High School transformed a formidable blank wall into a jazzy collage of color, pattern and realistic rendering. Echoing the modernist architecture of the building, the mural is loosely arranged in a rectangular grid that contains images related to family, culture, education and community development.
