Description

This Could Be an Edward Bouchet Mural

"I plan on creating a mural portrait of scientist Edward Bouchet who the first African American person to receive a doctorate in America in 1876. He was born in New Haven, was the valedictorian at The Hopkins School, earned his diploma from New Haven High School, and earned his PhD in physics from Yale University. Bouchet’s dissertation was on measuring refractive indices, thus the background of this mural will consist of bright planes of color portrayed in a series of abstracted, refracted light patterns. This historical and inspirational work of public art is the Edward Bouchet Mural Project." - Kwadwo Adae
