Monday Mural: dragons everywhere

On a recent trip through Chinatown, I was startled to see dragon murals everywhere.  They are distinctive due to their predominate colors of gold and black.  All are signed Dragon School or Dragon School 99.  Google tells me this is a local organization dedicated to teaching art to youth and to beautifying the walls of Chinatown.  All murals are painted with permission of the buildings' owners.  They started out with the idea of painting 99 dragons and easily surpassed that goal.  Now they've started to add more colors to their compositions and are planning to take on additional subjects.  Walking the streets felt like falling into a treasure trove.

Welcome to Monday Mural.  If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme's for you; just follow the Linky steps below.  You decide what constitutes a mural.  Once you start looking, you find them everywhere.  Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds posted this week.  Google+ users, please configure your post so we all can leave a comment.  Thanks.  I'll be gone for a few weeks and won't be able to leave comments on your posts.  The meme will still go up weekly via auto-posting.

  3. What a great idea to have a "Dragon School" to paint murals in China town. The one you photographed is terrific. Were they all this good?
