We Are The River


I was one of the lead artists for the 2017 Power of Vision youth mural program, done in partnership with Hope Community and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Co-leads Olivia Levins Holden, Alizarin Menninga-Fong and I worked with a group of 14 youth, most of whom were from the Minneapolis neighborhoods of Whittier & Phillips.

The lead artist team facilitated the following activities with the youth muralists: team building, developing skills, identifying issues that impact their communities, collaborating on a design, and painting the mural. We have named the mural, We Are The River.

We Are The River is located in Minneapolis on the intersection of Franklin and Clinton Aves.
