DeLa Vega Inspired

DeLa Vega Mural at Union Settlement in Harlem
A few weeks back I shared some examples of De La Vega's artwork with the middle school students I work with. We talked about the words he chooses and how coming across them at random might change one's outlook on the day. Then, armed with a bucket of colored chalk, they left words for others. The kids covered almost the entire block with words that held meaning. It is days like this that I am reminded why I do the kind of work I do.
