Two murals have recently been created for the Rose Town and Standpipe communities by partnership between the US Embassy’s Public Affairs Section and the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. The creative design was led by noted American muralist Phillip Martin with significant input from residents of the communities. They incorporate elements of each community and symbolise friendship and partnership between Jamaica and the United States. The murals can be located at the Rollins Enterprise Centre (Rose Town) and the Church of St. Margaret Community Playground (Standpipe).
