Join CITYarts as we restore, create, or re-create public art across the city through engaging youth in communities in art education workshops and on-site projects!


Art is a powerful tool, especially for the youth of a community. The act of creating art serves as an important outlet for self-expression and facilitates community building. Young participants and volunteers spend months creating the new and uplifting establishments in their community with the goal of conveying a positive message. They will always remember how that sense of purpose feels, and can take ownership of a mural that brightens up their neighborhood with color and positivity.
