Morley just had the opporunity to work on a fun community project with children and teaching them the wheat paste process. Morley also provided an inspiring quote to go along with the posters which can be read below.
This is yet another example of how this current generation of street art is geared towards 'community'.
Because even if Morley's words could be rewritten, it wouldn't improve on what is there, so here is Morley's detail of the event taken from his website, with more photos and Morley at IAmMorley:
I was asked by the lovely organizers in charge of Bicycle Artist, (a group that works to encourage creative expression for kids and their families through a variety of artistic mediums) to help them with their latest event. Working with JR's Inside Out Project, they created 45 posters, measuring 135 feet, and reached out to me to give a brief lesson to the group about street art and the wheat paste process. They also asked me to contribute some words in the theme of "peace love and understanding" that could accompany the posters. This spot in Korea Town was set up just for the project (with permission and everything, always a rare treat). After showing them how to put up a poster, I watched the group get to work. It was quite an inspiring day.
The piece I wrote:
THIS IS OUR HOME: OUR SUN, OUR STARS, OUR SKY. THIS IS OUR CALM, THIS IS OUR STORM. THIS IS OUR PROGRESS, OUR DISTANCE, OUR GIFT, OUR CHALLENGE, OUR POTENTIAL, OUR RESPONSIBILITY, OUR TODAY, OUR TOMORROW. THIS IS OUR "RIGHT NOW." LET'S FACE IT TOGETHER.
