EDNA MANLEY STUDENTS PAINT SIGMA RUN MURAL

 

Six students from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts designed a mural to mark the starting line of the Sagicor Sigma Run in February. Done in collaboration with 30 Sagicor Foundation scholars, the project took six hours to complete. The artwork was painted on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston, in the vicinity of the Sagicor Life Centre. It depicts cheerful colours and includes children, who are a major focus for Sagicor Foundation.
