The Project Lennon embraces and empowers our youth through the arts. We are proposing a joint project to end the blighting impact of graffiti. We will redirect youthful creativity and enthusiasm into graphic art. The Project Lennon is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that advocates for art, music, and peace for our neighborhoods. Our project has grown way beyond our original intent and surprised us.
On Memorial Day, 2001, #artivist Sam Ballard installed the two original bronze castings of "Spirit" on the cupolas of the Lewis Bank of Commerce. The building, #73 on the San Diego Historic Register, was the anchor to the now famous Gaslamp Quarter Redevelopment District. Sam Ballard's eagles are available made-to-order in bronze casting. Various mounting options and materials make this bird adaptable for most architectural applicaions.
