Why is the Staircase Mural Destroyed?


Alejandra Munoz, writer

The purpose of art is to visually please the mind, it’s sad to think that someone can actually destroy something so beautiful.  The mural on the stairs had a spectrum of colors that came together to represent a tree of knowledge and growth. The mural was made over the summer by Ms.Ramsey and some students. Looking at the stairs now, it’s hard to picture what it once was. One would think that it was deliberately destroyed by someone, or was it? We decided to investigate this, so we interviewed Ms.Ramsey. Turns out that it wasn’t destroyed by someone. The students who were responsible for completing the piece did not do it right. They got lazy and forgot to clean the stairs.
