Northwestern High School students work on mural and gallery

A mural goes unnoticed, tucked away on a short, empty hallway at Miami Northwestern Senior High School. It's colorful and inspired but it was created on walls near the art classrooms and isn't seen by many. Students may not even know that on that hallway an art gallery exists, but for one art student the seclusion is perfect. “This is a quiet place I can express myself and not be judged. It gave me a place to call home - a sanctuary,” said Garfield Joseph, a junior and manager of the new art gallery on which students are working hard.
