The Texan-French Alliance for the Arts‘ summer program “From a Space to a Place” in partnership with YES Prep Northside and the MD Anderson Family YMCA is nearing completion. We’ve been working with a dedicated group of middle school students to bring positive change into their neighborhood. After brainstorming ideas, the students decided to unite their community under a “flag of positivity,” creating a bold mural of the American flag with inspirational words and messages written in different languages inside the stars and stripes. In addition to the mural, the students are painting colorful stones that will be placed around the trees to draw attention to the mural. Currently in progress, their project will be completed in time for the celebration event this weekend.

The unveiling of the mural will be held Friday, July 1st from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at 2301 Fulton St, Houston, TX 77009 (the backside of Jefferson Dental Clinic at the crossroads of Gentry St and Quitman St). Following this, there will be a celebration event at the M.D. Anderson Family YMCA (705 Cavalcade St, Houston, TX 77009) from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

 

We hope to see you there!
