Meet featured artists, UWATX‘s Middle School Matters Students!
Their artwork is on display now through January 4, 2016 at our Southwest location, 4301 W William Cannon Dr., Austin, TX 78749.
In support of and collaboration with United Way for Greater Austin’s Middle School Matters program, we came up with a way to use our walls as a platform to represent a youth perspective about community and what they think #MakesAustinGreater. UWATX’s Middle School Matters art project aimed to show how art can be used as a service and a message of social change. Through displaying their artwork, students were given an opportunity to use their voice to cultivate community with people they don’t know and will never meet. 45 students were involved in the project, along with a couple of Kerbey Lane Cafe volunteers. Typically, 2 to 5 students collaborated on each canvas.
