2012 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Michelle will create Aqui y Alla, a public art project that will explore the impact of immigration in the lives of Mexican immigrant youth in South Philadelphia in connection with youth in Chihuahua, Mexico.  This project seeks to work simultaneously on both sides of the border, Chihuahua and Philadelphia, to join the two cultural worlds through the vision of young people. Four artists from the Colectivo Rezizte (Juarez) and Colectivo Madrono (Chihuahua City) will work in collaboration with Michelle by guiding the youth (here and there) in the creation of a collaborative permanent mural in South Philadelphia.
