Community Youth Add to Urban Nature Exhibit
By Lisa Eldred, Director of Exhibitions on Jul 15, 2008
Last month eight youth organizations created responses to the concept of "Urban Nature." Each group of kids painted 8x8' murals to present their view on how the city and the natural world meet. These brightly colored paintings are visible at a distance and can be found along the El Pomar waterway. Many have a global message and remind us we are one people on the planet, and need to care for it accordingly. Among the participants are: Academia Maria Sandoval, Beacon Neighborhood Center, Butterfly Hope, Globeville Recreation Center, Jefferson High School, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, West High Mural Club, and Wilfley Boys & Girls Club. Students and their families enjoyed a special evening in their honor to celebrate their creativity.
