MGFEMS – stairwells 120914


December 12/09  I had the privilege to spend several hours photographing the interior of Maree Farring Elementary Middle School in Brooklyn , MD just up 3rd Street from the Brooklyn Enoch Pratt Free Library.  The purpose  of the dark navy blue paint was to prevent the children’s writing and drawing from  being visible on the walls.  Without knowing the history my hunch was that  the children did not have an adequate creative outlet so they expressed themselves on the walls.
