Anjel Newmann subject of Shepard Fairey mural in Providence

Anjel Newmann, a PC master’s in urban teaching student, was the subject for the 100th mural by internationally known artist Shepard Fairey.

Newmann wrote the quote, “Creativity is the mechanism of self-liberation.”

Fairey created the mural at 91 Clemence St. in Providence as part of a campaign for AS220, a Providence arts nonprofit. Newmann was a natural choice to be the face of AS220, since she joined its youth program when she was 13 and now serves as director of programs for the organization as a whole.
