Acero Charter Schools – Victoria Soto
The Frida Kahlo Community Organization
Grant Amount: 10,000
Students will create multiple murals and/or sculptures in the school and Gage Park community to raise awareness about social justice issues. The 30 juniors and seniors collaborating on this project will research and pursue what is necessary to create the public art. They will execute planning and designing on iPad programs such as Procreate and Onshape. Our partner, The Frida Kahlo Community Organization, will support this project through the provision of teaching artists/ muralists well versed in the cultural (specifically Latino) arts and experience in working with students from across the CPS landscape.
