The Proposed Mural Designs

The proposed mural by JT Daniels is located behind 10,000 Villages store. They are a fair trade business and sell fair trade crafts from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. From JT, “My design does showcase women from varied cultures, a few of which are represented heavily within the store that fosters fair trade items from these countries, where the money provides for their families & etc. The background in the mural is the former logo for the organization, just repeated and spread out across the wall, to reflect the idea of 10,000 villages and how these people are interconnected.”   Partial funding for this mural is provided by the children of Jeanne Stephens Lee Blackmar in memory of her outstanding service to women.
