I and West Reading

By Students from Wyomissing High School’s Public Art Workshop, 2010
I and West Reading was designed and painted by the students in WAHS’s Public Art Workshop. This mural is inspired by the artist Marc Chagall’s painting I and the Village, painted in 1911.
216 Kline Street, West Reading, PA 19611
Currently on display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Chagall painted this image inspired by the memories of growing up in a small town in Russia, where people and animals lived side-by-side.  West Reading’s twist on this image shows our connection to our pets. The mural also features other images unique to West Reading, including the row homes, community garden, hospital tower and bike path.
