A 2010 summer trip to Juarez, Mexico with 7 college students and 4 artist colleagues to “beautify the barrio” project. We worked with hundreds of children on art projects day in and day out at a roughed out compound waiting to develop into a community center. As artist we collected trash and transformed it into art. With the children we engaged in various art projects for their adventures. In culmination, we painted a “mural of hope” at the local rehab center.
