We Spark Change
Dimensions25 x 12 ft
We Spark Change expresses the values of Brooklyn Community Foundation by creating a mural inspired by the Foundations mission to pursue a fair and just Brooklyn, and to Spark Lasting Social Change with particular focus on activating and investing in Brooklyns youth. The team featured a lead artist and four talented Youth Artist Apprentices, who on previous Groundswell projects showed leadership, creativity, and dreams of a career in art. We Spark Change contains images of youth empowerment and community involvement such as siblings helping each other with homework, youth and senior citizens watering a garden, and a young artist painting a peers protest sign which reads Fair & Just. Several images of Brooklyns iconic architecture, such as brownstones and the Brooklyn Bridge, locate the mural in the borough.
