Favela-Barrio Community Art Project

Inspired by the wave motif found in pavement of Ipanema beach walks, graduate student fellows Bridgett Shank and Raffaella Falchi worked with the school children and local tradesmen of Manguinhos in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil to curate and implement improvements to the local elementary school courtyard.
