A novel way to encourage reading, Mundelein High School District 120, Chicago, Illinois have transformed their English department hallway into an amazing learning environment.
Using walls either side of the classroom doorways which jut out like book spines, this High school have turned their corridor into a bookshelf-esque line-up just in time for students returning from their Christmas break in January. In a post on Facebook the High School explained, “A Routine hallway has been transformed into a giant motivational tableau to encourage reading.”
This stunning project, which was designed by Visual Image Photography, uses vinyl murals to turn the walls into giant book titles. Among the books chosen to adorn these walls are; Bear Town by Fredrik Backman, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, and October Mourning by Leslea Newman.
The effect of these transformations is truly amazing to look at and we hope the students are in awe with this artwork in their school as much as we are.
