Halfway through the Art and Activism class, students began designing and painting a large scale mural on the theme “Towards a More Just and Sustainable World”.  The mural includes references to serious issues of concern the students identified including the plight of refugees,  global hunger, racism and the environmental crisis. They also included hopeful images related to justice and equality. Working with guest artists Christina Schlesinger, Arcmanoro Niles and Molly Weiss, the students have been collaborating over several days.
