The Delridge Mural Project 2013-2014

The Delridge Mural Project was a multi-year community art venture in conjunction with The Work Readiness Art Program (WRAP). WRAP engages youth in an exploration of diversity and culture in their own community through photo documentation, group discussions, field trips, mural painting, and visits to public art displays. Through these means, the participants develop a greater sense of personal identity and voice, and also build a sense of citizenship and investment in the local community.
