2016 Art and Change Grant – : $2,240

Misty will illustrate a series of coloring and activity books with the theme of sustainability for the children of Chester. The images will reflect the predominantly Black racial make up of the children, and the content will include the objectives and input of three youth programs- Chester Unity Through the Arts, Ruth Bennett Homes Garden, and I Can I Will Children’s Garden and Art Gallery. The artwork will document and celebrate the youth-led environmental justice work in Chester, provide children with fun and culturally relevant learning materials, build bridges between the programs, and create incentives for more programs that address environmental racism in Chester. Misty will partner up with Lakesha Logan, children’s librarian at J. Crozier Library, who will help distribute over 300 books through pop-up events focusing on sustainability in the area.
