School Transformation

Because They Sat Down, We Stand Taller

This project is the first of a four-year Artist Residency at Burnside Academy. The project includes both youth-involved installations and artist-commissioned works that reflect the rich Civil Rights history of the school and prominent African Americans.

Participatory Mural Making


               The Process

Restoring the P.I.E.C.E.S. Project

This grassroots mural project took place at Carolyn Elaine’s alma mater Fenger High School. She brought students together with parents, staff, administrators, alumni and community to assist all in developing a renewed sense of self-identity, belonging, and personal worth in the face of escalating violence, by focusing on their strengths and their personal and family stories in a high quality artistic experience supported by the community.
