Treme Homecoming Mural
In partnership with the Arts Council of New Orleans
Artists Jamar Pierre and Ivan Watkins led youth art classes and Saturday community workshops on art and mural design. They also learned how to research, document & depict the history of Treme & Treme Center with elders and artists in the community.
The project culminated with a large mural (above) for the Treme Rec Center that honors the Treme community's heroes, history and culture. Students paintings are also on display in the main walkway.
