KENNEDY AND KING: from mural to canvas

We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.
~ John F. Kennedy
We must combine the toughness of the serpent and the softness of the dove, a tough mind and a tender heart.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Photo of the artist Edaw Wade in front of his Kennedy & King mural painted in 1980. Edaw was a Fine Art and Mural Painting teacher for the City Colleges of Chicago for over 30 years. He was often commissioned to paint murals inside the halls of Malcolm X and Kennedy King College.

Custom Canvas Art member artist Edaw Wade works to bring his original mural and oil paintings to vibrant life on canvas. He scans the original painting, or uses a quality photograph to produce a canvas print that is often more vibrant and larger than the original! Find out more about C.C.ART Services on the website.
