Seeds of the Future addresses environmental justice issues in Sunset Park, issues that young activists from UPROSE continue to work tirelessly to change. The mural team included teen artists of Chinese, Puerto Rican, Arabic, Mexican, and Italian descent, representing the many diverse communities living in Sunset Park. Throughout the intensive mural design process, the seven youth artists deepened their collaboration skills. Together, they developed a final design that illustrates environmental concerns in Sunset Park and envisions a more hopeful and sustainable future for the community. The mural calls attention to serious environmental concerns in the area, including brownfields and a lack of green space, while inspiring hope of healing the environment. The mural became a source of pride for the youth participants, as an artwork that both beautifies the neighborhood and informed the community about important issues affecting the youth artists lives.
