The World is Yours by Noah Sparks

Artist Noah Sparks came to Braddock to participate in Points of Interest, a program created by the artist Swoon to improve 15 different locations in town in one week with art. On this long wall next to a community garden, Mr Sparks did a very different sort of mural. It's not totally abstract and it's not totally real, but it seems to be a melding of the two. The shapes or silhouettes of people doing all sorts of activities are filled with varying geometric patterns. Perhaps his version of multi–cultural? That’s only a guess, but what it definitely is, is interesting and different. The message is optimistic and hopeful for the struggling community: The World is Yours.
