Still processing the power of this *Chronicles of Guns in America* mural by @jr - the video and interactive links to these human voices, and the challenge of an artist to tell opinions from all sides that successfully built (seemingly impossible) bridges between them. We wondered if the red 11 was vandalism and learned it was added the day of the shooting in Pittsburg where 11 died. If you haven’t seen the art, read the article or listened to the stories we highly recommend it and **you can find it all at http://time.com/guns-in-america/ **πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ // if you were lucky enough to see the video mural at @pacegallery we’d love to hear what you took away from it...

@urbanartworks board member (and past mural collaborator!) @ktramirez71 has a solo show up @kc4culture for the next few weeks, where she colorfully explores the impact of the human hand on planet earth. We were especially fond of the boarder mash ups! // You can see a few of her large murals on @sodotrack and in the I-90 bike tunnel!

Dear human North Americans (by birth, boat, boarder or plane), please take the time to #vote (especially you WA State, it’s just a walk to the mailbox!). It it our responsibility as citizens to aim for a better future that provides equity for all. Though it is our right as citizens to vote some citizens have had this taken away, so we have to do our part for unheard voices and #makechangehappen // thank you to @teresagrasseschi for making these voting ladies for us all to share! πŸ’• // #itsmyvote #election2018 #urbanartworks

#muralmonday with @jesse_brown! We are so thankful for Jesse's consistent yes to projects this past summer. This is just one of the many projects he said yes to and by far one of our favorite color palettes to date. || This mural is for an affordable housing and human services development by @mercyhousing β€” and an ode to the changing Rainier Ave S, #chubbyandtubby and other iconic signage we love

#ThrowbackThursday to one of our Spring Murals for a development in Rainier Valley. Although we primarily focus on public art created with our youth we still love to curate private projects in order to help us fund our youth programming. Most of our youth come from Rainier valley and we appreciate the opportunities to bring creativity to the inevitable changing landscape. || Our team executed this wall and 5 others with the help of @zoewatsonart and @amishpagoda. Thank you both so much for your time πŸ’• .
