Boys and Girls Club-Community Mural Project
Muhammad Ali took up boxing at the age of 12 years old. He went on to win the World. boxing Association’s heavyweight title three times.
Ali is considered the greatest boxer of all time. Those too young to remember his fights have likely heard some of his famous sayings:
“I’m so mean I make medicine sick”
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”
“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth”
“if they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you”
Muhammad Ali had a total of 61 fights with 56 wins, 37 knock outs and 5 losses.
The mural was created as a community project, with people of all ages invited to paint.
The artist Lauren Andreu designed the mural as a “paint by numbers” project. This is one of the murals in her series “For the Cause of Peace and Brotherhood”.
Children using the gym leave messages on the mural:
I’m giving three thumbs up on this great mural find on Hilton Head Island South Carolina.
One for “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali and his desire to inspire
One for the artist for bringing this message to a new generation
One for all those that participated in the creation of this piece of art.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day 🙂
Wow, fabulous mural Alice. Thumbs up to the artist and all those that helped bring this mural to life.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Alice.
What a fabulous mural, Alice. I adore the sayings you shared, too, especially the one about moldy bread. I’d never heard him say that. You have found an absolutely PERFECT mural this week.
Thank you. I wasn’t out looking for one a lady at the park told me about it.
A pretty amazing character, Alice. I always hated boxing but there was so much more to him. 🙂 🙂
