Paint it Forward
(Manhattan - 2017)

Murray Hill Academy Mural Project is a part of our Community Identity program. This program encourages participants to examine who they are and how they can best express a cohesive, community-driven identity through the creation of a public mural. By creating this mural themselves, these students gain a sense of pride and ownership over their accomplishment, and form a stronger connection to their school. This collaborative, creative process amongst the students, faculty, and professional artists, gives participants a positive sense of community and inclusion that they might not experience elsewhere. In the end, this project will transform Murray Hill Academy into an inspiring environment that embodies the unified identity of its students.
