Bi-costal collective Miss Rockaway Armada worked intensively with two Big Picture sites, Mastery Charter School and the Southwest Community Enrichment Center, to gather ideas for See the Diff?.  The mural was created out of a two-week long drawing dialogue between the two sites. The youth were asked to send a "message in a bottle" to another classroom of students they had never met, starting off a "call and response" drawing exchange between young artists.  Miss Rockaway Armada used the idea of communication between two distant worlds and the images developed by the students during class as the basis for the mural design.
