Showcase your talent in this social justice themed mural project!
Slow Food UW and The Crossing are seeking artists to create a collaborative mural instillation in our dining room. Each artist will have creative authority to paint a section of the mural, and will work with other artists to meld their pieces together into a cohesive mural. Our dining room is a shared space located in the basement of The Crossing where over 400 people per week come through for various Slow Food UW events and other events.
The goal of this project is to bring new life into our shared dining space and create a visual reminder about the importance of social justice. Social justice is both the process and goal of creating equitable economic, political, and social opportunities for all individuals and groups, which is a shared mission of Slow Food UW and The Crossing. This project offers community artists an opportunity to not only expand their portfolio, showcase their art, and make a living wage, but also help advance social justice by sparking conversation through their work.This article was posted in Campus & Community Involvement.
