Mural

Vision for Tomorrow

Based on his portfolio and prior engagement in the Niagara Falls community, Jalen Law was selected from a group of artists who responded to NFTA-Metro and NFNHA’s call for artists at the end of 2020 to create a mural inside the NFTA-Metro Portage Road Transportation Center.

 

Initially, the intent for the mural was to improve the appearance of the Center’s indoor waiting area, generating feelings of comfort, safety, and pride. But with Jalen onboard, the project evolved to truly connect with the residents of Niagara Falls, empowering them to have their voices heard through an interactive element that allows the public to provide feedback. This element comes in the form of a QR code which connects to a web page where visitors can provide insight into their hopes and visions for their community. 

 

The mural also features a sculpture also completed by Jalen.

About the Artist

Jalen Law

Jalen Law

Jalen has been an artist since the age of four. He’s always been interested in different forms of creation, including painting, drawing, and sculpting. In his sophomore year of college, he decided to create his own business around his artistic talent. Since, his path has expanded into many different directions, in particular with creating murals. His first mural was a City of Buffalo initiative to honor essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic — the piece was a 5’X10’ aluminum panel honoring doctors and nurses. Then, the Niagara Falls Heritage Center approached him about creating a portrait for their Niagara Falls Murals initiative, leading him to create his Calvin “Pop” Porter mural. 

Common themes in Jalen’s work include utilizing technology and digital arts, including audio and video stimulation, to allow all types of people to engage with his pieces.
