Flag on the Two Three


Southeast Diesel Inc. (23rd St. @ Orchard Knob Ave.)

Artists: 25 participants from AIM Center and the GLAD program from New City Fellowship Church in collaboration with professional artists Judy Mogul and Frances McDonald

Partners: AIM Center, New City Fellowship, and Southeast Diesel Inc.

Description: Southeast Diesel Inc. (SDI), interested in 23rd St. beautification, wanted to animate the street frontage of their business. They contacted Mark Making about recycling a diesel tank on their property, transforming it into a painted “sculpture.” SDI envisioned a flag theme: an image that would take its inspiration from the American flag. Mark Making offered workshops to design individual cut paper compositions for participants. SDI selected the composition created by AIM Center member, Rodrick McGee who met several times with Mark Making staff to transfer the design to the tank. AIM Center members returned to paint the tank following Rodrick’s design.
