The DOME Project held art workshops that kicked off the creation of a 185 ft. exterior mural named “Our Place on the Globe” and brought together youth from the west side neighborhood Commons and the DOME Project to promote the importance of creativity involvement in the community. Youth from the west side neighborhood Commons and the DOME Project on the upper west side, Community volunteers (youth, parents, grandparents, and residents of NYCHA Housing), Teachers and Staff from partnering organizations gathered at the Westside neighborhood commons, 696 Amsterdam Ave. (between 93rd and 94th street). Our focus was on creative expression and creative thinking through the visual arts and empowering young girls and boys with opportunities to discover, learn about and practice art to build strong leaders of tomorrow.
