At this special mural painting event in the Bronx, Puerto Rican artist Patricia Melodia Lewis will lead community members of all ages in painting a mural that tells a story of community resilience in the face of climate injustice. Her vision for the mural will be inspired by an earlier after-school workshop with high school students where participants work together to visually express their feelings and thoughts about climate change.
Join community members, artists, and teenagers on Sunday, October 14 to co-create the mural, discuss climate impacts, and learn how public art can promote social justice and have a lasting impact in our communities.
Paint a Climate Mural is presented in partnership with YUCA Arts. The event is free and open to the public.
