I had a wonderful time working on a mural in El Barrio this past week!
I can't express the gratitude I feel from all the support I received from the community and residents of East Harlem. Getting the community involved in the creation of the mural and seeing them take pride and ownership of the mural was inspirational. From having young local artists from the neighborhood join in, the elders come over and welcome the imagery and message, and even the young kids making paper boats that I hung from the tress in front of it ... all has been an experience of a lifetime.
