Youth Mural Club set to unveil Sound of the Community: Mural Awakening

When it comes to the broad reach of murals in Buffalo, there is not one person that isn’t affected in some manner. But when it comes to the act of mural creation, there are plenty of people, both young and old, who are looking to learn more and get involved. It’s one of the reasons that The Riverline: Community Arts Program is in place. Along with The Buffalo Center for Arts & Technology, a Youth Mural Club has been established, and members of the club have reached the finish line on a new mural (and coinciding celebration) called Sound of the Community: Mural Awakening.

Below is a video featuring muralist Kendric Warrick, who is a digital and fine arts student at BCAT, as well as James Dwuznik who is Portfolio Pathways & Fine Arts student. We also hear from Dr. Kamalah Poles, director of the Youth Arts & Tech Program at BCAT. Together, this team discussed the opportunities that these types of murals present for neighborhoods, as well as for the muralists who partake in the artistic exercises.

On Friday, October 6th, from 5pm to 7pm, the community is invited to attend the unveiling of the mural at 44 Moore Street in Buffalo. There will be family friendly activities, catered food from Soul Food LLC, and “a celebration as we awake the newest mural from the youth Mural Club!”
