Bill Dunlap recently finished up a residency at West Nottingham Academy where he worked on a few murals, one of his own and one with the high school kids from the academy. In his own mural, Bill incorporates Walt Whitman's Song of Myself (1855):
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
So they show their relations to me and I accept them.
The kids murals, are above and below.
