In 1994 Mark Cooper was invited by the Capitol Children's Museum to work with adolescents from the Youth at Risk Program, the National Learning Center, Neighborhood Schools, Police Boys and Girls Clubs, and Homeless Shelters. The project was to create 1,110 works of public art expressing the wish to Stop the Violence. Mark collaborates with the young people to create billboards and illuminated dioramas which are attached to public buses and displayed in the Washington, D.C. metro system. Mark has been traveling to Washington each week this fall to supervise the project and direct the creation of the works.
