The project is a partnership between Main IDEA and the Boys & Girls Club. Youth ages 11-18 submitted design entries for the mural with the prompt, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (MLK). 2 Youth Artists’ designs were chosen, and a youth arts team consisting of both Main IDEA Youth & B&G Club members worked together to co-paint the design along with the Lead & Assistant Artists.
