"This mural was painted in Missoula, MT in 2020. It is one of four murals painted for The Mural Alley Project

​This project was created with the intention of facilitating community connection and amplifying voices of individuals in Missoula.

I love public art projects which invite public participation, especially when collaborators can tangibly see their individual contributions in the final product. Along this vein of thought, I wanted to use this mural as an opportunity for people to safely connect during the pandemic.

I began the process by organizing a participation call, where I invited community members to send me photos of their hands, some words that they would like to share about themselves, and their favorite color."
