On Wednesday July 6th the youth artists of the mural artist apprenticeship program, Art @ Work: Upton, led a community design presentation where they presented their ideas for murals and mosaics, heard community feedback and shared how they came up with their designs.

This summer, eight teams comprised of a lead artist, an artist intern, and ten youth apprentices enrolled in Youth Works will create public art projects along the Pennsylvania Avenue cultural corridor.
