This morning’s Jane’s Walk on Calle 16 (on 16th Street between McDowell and Thomas) was phenomenal. We learned so much about the mural project from artist and co-founder of Calle 16 Hugo Medina. He showed us how the mural project is helping the people of this neighborhood take pride in where they live, how it’s helping to get locals involved in doing something larger then themselves, how it’s helping mentor young artists into established socially-minded artists and how it’s really the beginning of a movement to show off the talent and creativity that we have here in Arizona.
Also a part of the walk were social entrepreneurs on Calle 16, Laurie Carmody, owner of Westwind studios and Steven Helfricc and Julia Fournier of The Hive.
Here are photos of our walk:
