Daly City Electrical Box Mural Project

In what has become known around Daly City as the Daly City Electrical Box Project, all of the Daly City traffic signal boxes were painted with murals by Skyline College art students. The project was a collaboration between Skyline College's Community Mural Program and the Daly City Art Commission, as well as CIPHER (The Center for Innovative Practices through Hip Hop Education & Research) at Skyline College. The students had to work directly with the Daly City Art Commission from design, approval, and finally to execution of nearly 20 small scale murals. This short documentary made by Skyline College Alumni Marilyn Flores features artists interviews with students Ju Young Ku, JTodd-O, Michaela Giles, and Alejandro Esquivias; and also includes an interview with the Skyline College President at that time of the project, Regina Stanback Stroud.

 

Thomas Edison Elementary School Mural 

The Thomas Edison Elementary School mural was a collaboration between this Daly City, California elementary school and Skyline College's Community Mural Project. Students worked closely with the Faculty and Administration at Thomas Edison Elementary to create a large-scale mural for their kindergarten classes. Every step of the mural had to be planned and approved by Thomas Edison Elementary School, giving the students firsthand experience with a real-life design process. The end product was an "Alphabet" wall that the kindergartners could interact with and from which teachers could provide instruction. 

MBJAM Mural LA

Michael B. Jordan created MBJAM in 2017 to celebrate family and bring much-needed awareness and funds to Lupus LA. Michael’s mother Donna lives with lupus and has been able to thrive thanks to the care and resources of Lupus LA. It’s for this reason that Michael established MBJAM – an event designed to provide families with an unforgettable afternoon of fun.

Skyline College faculty and students participated in a mural project as part of MBJAM in 2017 and 2018.
