Art Project Gallery
Holy Trinity - Our Lady of Guadalupe Church Mural

Several teens, most of whom belonged to the Holy Trinity - Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, painted a mural that celebrates their religion and Hispanic culture. Ammar Tate, an African American artist, worked with the teens to help them draw out their ideas on paper. Each element of the mural was transferred to a transparency then projected on to the wall with an overhead projector.

The teens at first worked at night to draw the images on the wall using the overhead projector. Their activities attracted the attention of the neighbors who were fascinated by the process of making the mural, the caliber of work the teens were capable of doing, and the beautiful mural the young people created.

This mural, as well as much of the public art created by the neighborhood teenagers and children, remains free of graffiti.
