For the third iteration of WPA-organized presentations at the Shinola store on 14th Street NW, Natalie Cheung presents "Rock Paper Scissors," a large vinyl mural. This is the first time the artist has presented her camera-less photographic work in this way, and at this scale.

This project has been generously supported by Shinola, a producer of high-quality, hand-crafted products based in Detroit.
In 2011, Shinola, a Bedrock Manufacturing Company, LLC brand was conceived with the belief that products should be built to last, and they should be built in America. As makers of modern, handcrafted watches, bicycles, leather goods, journals, and pet accessories, we are proud to be based in Detroit, a community-minded city with a strong manufacturing legacy. Shinola built their watch and leather factories within the College for Creative Studies in the former Argonaut building. As a new company with a storied name, they stand for skill at scale, the preservation of craft, and the beauty of industry. To find out more about Shinola visit: www.shinola.com.
