Artist Information:

Johnny Fletcher created his artist name Johnny Five, he is the fifth John in his family and the most popular when he was born and his favorite movie was Short Circuit. He use to dream of making robots as a kid and when he discovered art, robots were his main muse. As an adult, Johnny loves to create works that inspire children to follow their dreams and let them know it’s okay to follow them. This mural “Follow Your Dreams” shows a young child in the box robot dreaming of what he wants to be when he grows up. While the child waits for their parents on the UM-Flint campus, the child dreams of the different opportunities the university can provide to make those dreams come true when he settles on their dream of being in the robotics program creating robots.
