Here’s the part about the project i did:
When Darci Rodenhi Jaret, a master of divinity student at Candler School of Theology, enrolled in the course, she arrived with a project in mind.
Jaret had previously volunteered with Solomon’s Temple, a component of Restoration ATL, which offers residential transitional housing for women and their children.
It was a cause close to Jaret, who had once been homeless herself. “Before engaging with the Ethics Department, I was holding group conversations with the women at the shelter, where we would talk about our journeys,” she says.
So Jaret collaborated with residents to create a large, three-piece, mixed media mural, with swirling colors that evolve from dark and brooding to bright, sunny hues, “moving toward the future in a hopeful way, as if the dawn is happening.”
The work will be a permanent installation at Solomon’s Temple. Student team members included Yujun Yan and Jennifer Hwang.
