Calling all art fanatics! As you all know, the Berlin Wall reflects a dark part of Germany's history. It is now a centerpiece of artistic creativity and has been reclaimed as a center for expression and personal reflection. Gaze upon wonderful pieces of art that run up and down the wall. Some of the pieces are exquisitely created with intricate use of colors and designs. This movement has allowed change and has inspired many to move past history and into the future. (Chae Chung)
