Urban League’s Black Young Professionals donate murals to School 29
The Urban League of Rochester’s Black Young Professionals (BYP) teamed up with Principal Tanya Wilson at Adlai E. Stevenson School 29 to nourish the creativity of the children by creating murals to be displayed on the walls. BYP was able to obtain an artist with a giving heart (and artistic hand). Alicia Astacio, volunteered her time to create four murals, which are entitled: Beautiful Words Make Beautiful People, Reach for the Stars, Spread Your Wings & Try, and Spaceman Reading.
Alicia made the murals very large because she wanted to challenge the children at School 29 to look up, be bold, resilient, and fearless in their mission to create beautiful futures for themselves, their family, and their community. BYP is grateful to be in the position to have a variety of talented professionals within its membership who have the capability to network and find supportive resources, and BYP looks forward to
being a strong pillar within the Rochester community.
Below is artist Ms. Astacio and Principal Wilson with students, shown in front of the "Reach for the Stars" mural.
