  • Empowering Each Other for a Better Future

    Through CITYarts' Public Art projects, we aim to inspire our children and youth to do the best they can, as students and human beings. Therefore, we make sure that the creative process of producing our public art involves artists and other inspiring individuals to show them the way. One such individual this month was Astronaut, Engineer, former NLF player, and photographer, Leland Melvin. During Black History Month, he gave an hour-long presentation on his life experience that taught our youth to never give up, saying "even if you fail, you get yourself right back up and continue to do your best." Astronaut Leland Melvin inspires us all and we'll continue to engage more youth with him as he leads them to Reach for the Stars!
