Outdoor Mural Kishroniyah: Machon & Nivonim
The magnum opus of Outdoor Mural Kishroniyah was initially designed and developed by the Machon and Nivonim participants. The Magshimim and Bogrim chanichim (campers) who followed them for the second half of the week completed the massive and intricate project. They were guided by Tova Speter (bio, below) and had stunning, vivid results.
