The World Mural Project Comes Alive!

July 19, 2008

Muralist and digital artist Favianna Rodriguez unveiled the Intel World Mural Project today amidst a group of young digital artists inside the Intel Computer Clubhouse nestled in the bustling East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club.

The University of California, Berkeley alumnus is now an Oakland, California-based Favianna. She helped Intel collect artwork from Computer Clubhouse students from 21 countries. She created an engaging digital romp through regions that opened up to artwork from students from Brazil, China, Costa Rica, the U.S. and other parts of the world.

All of this as a way to celebrate Intel’s 40th birthday. Looks like the future’s in good hands!

Here’s a video of Favianna’s unveiling, which I shot using my nifty Flip cam.

Stepping Into the Future Through the World Mural

Hello World Mural Project!

June 23, 2008

What do you think computers will empower you to do in the Next 40 Years? To celebrate Intel’s 40th birthday on July 18th, kids around the world are working on a digital mural to answer that question.

When we first thought of ways for celebrating this special day, we had a hard time coming up with something that is not only being nostalgia and looking back. We want to envision the future.

Then one of our brilliant team members came up with the idea of asking kids in computer clubhouses to imagine what it will be like in the coming 40 years. What is a better way than to ask the keepers of our future to tell us what they want to see in the future? I heard our volunteers are all jazzed up to work with the kids on this project as part of our CEO‘s pledge to give back to the community in celebrating our birthday.

The mural will be unveiled on July 18. We are all looking forward to the creativity from the kids and fun stories our volunteers and coordinators will share with us here. Enjoy and have fun 🙂
