“We Are The River” Mural

“We are the River” Mural, 2017

Mia partnered with Hope Community on the Power of Vision Mural Program, working with a group of young people from the Whittier and Phillips neighborhoods to design and paint this mural. With the creative guidance of artists Olivia Levins Holden, Tori Hong, and Alizarin Menninga-Fong, the youth explored issues impacting them and their communities, and how they and others are working to heal people and the earth. They collaboratively designed and painted this image to make those stories visible on Franklin Ave.
