My muse: Mural Arts Philadelphia
The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program has been key in my development. I was honored to be selected as an intern in 2008 for 2 months in Philadelphia. I validated my vision and confirmed the success of a large scale mural making program that integrates community members and uses art as a tool for social justice, restorative programs, job creation and urban planning.
I want to lead the vision of an organization like Mural Arts and until then I am more and more amazed by the work they do. It must be noted that the program has immense support from the City of Philadelphia which is a valuable stakeholder.
