Rankin Christian Center
Students of the Rankin Christian Center design and produce a mural while learning about leadership and teamwork.
More than just a large-scale art piece, the Rankin Gymnasium Mural, designed in collaboration with Andy Warhol Museum international Dutch artist-in-residence Stefan Hoffmann for the Rankin Christian Center, is the centerpiece of the Center’s youth workshop and community engagement program. The project goes beyond just the production of the mural, opening a new printshop in the Center, staffed by students who will learn digital and screen printing design processes that will be used in producing uniforms, posters and promotional materials for the project’s culminating event: a basketball tournament in the newly adorned gymnasium. The multifaceted project teaches students new skills, along with lessons in leadership, teamwork and creative thinking.
