2010 Leadership Mural Series Unveiling

Please join our 2010 Teen Mural Assistants (TMAs) as they unveil their Leadership Mural Series at the MMAP Headquarters at 2043 Euclid Avenue, East Palo Alto, CA 94105.

This summer, we hired 30 outstanding teens from East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Redwood City and San Francisco to research, design and unveil a mural series on the 2010 theme, Leadership.  Because of the depth of their research and the enthusiasm around the topic, teens brainstormed over 100 ideas for imagery and have decided to paint five murals touching on five areas of leadership: Civic Engagement / Political Participation, Education, Technology, Economic Empowerment / Legal Services, and Environmental Responsibility.

This past week at TMP, those words could not have been any truer. With drive and dedication that only our MMAP teens can exert, we are now more than halfway done with our murals and music production! But we can’t take all the credit; we have to take the time to thank all of our extended MMAP family who have come out during the last week to help us out: Rachel McIntire, Kelleen Sullivan, Jessica Zablah, Devin Ruiz, Diana Marquez, & Stephanie Wright! The progress is evident- check it all out in 11 days at the Leadership Mural Series Unveiling on Friday August 27th!

Painting, dancing, making music… MMAP teens can do it all!

At our Design Workshop, the teens brainstormed over 100 ideas for mural imagery! Those concepts will be translated into not just one but FIVE murals throughout the MMAP headquarters. Half the students are hard at work painting, while the other half writes and records original hip-hop music to be showcased at our Unveiling on August 27th!

On Friday, the paint was moving and the music flowing. Guest artist Lauren Camarillo led the HHH students through a grueling choreography. Congrats to the teens for concluding their second week of the artistic phase!
