Artist Steffi Lynn Tsai of Brooklyn, N.Y., was selected to paint two wall murals at the Thames Elementary School greenspace. Her submission to a previously published call for artists garnered interest in a Hattiesburg project. Some of Tsai’s previous clients are Samsung, Adobe Creative Cloud, American Eagle, Kenneth Cole, Wendy’s, Converse, Sephora, Chipotle, Kendra Scott, and more. This is her first project in Mississippi.
This mural reminds us all that even the smallest “seed” can have a huge impact on someone’s growth. Steffi Lynn’s goal is to paint a mural centered on youth development in every state.
