Clique

Clique is defined as a small group with shared interests who often spend time together. This mural's original concept of circular designs was later altered when the building was renovated into the West Reading Motor Club. The original mural was adjusted to reflect this history of autos connected to the site.

About the Project

Clique was designed and painted by the students in the Public Art Workshop in 2015. When the building was renovated years later, the flow of the mural was interrupted by improvements in the building structure. The new owners kept the mural and the design of circular patterns was expanded to include painted classic car tires and dozens of hubcaps, connecting to the building's history as a car dealer and showroom.
