Check out this inspiring article on Sixty Inches From Center about Urban Gateways teaching artist Victoria Martinez and how she is using her artistic practice to make a mark on her home neighborhood of Pilsen. The article features Victoria’s work with Pickard Elementary as part of her Traveling Minds program with Urban Gateways, where she collaborated with 5th through 7th grade students to craft a mural titled “Championing Neighborhood Memories” that now graces Pickard’s playground area. We are thrilled to see Victoria’s incredible community arts work so recognized.
