Semilla’s Young Leaders and Artists have been busy this summer creating public art to brighten up spots with hope, beauty, and imagination in the Midtown and East Phillips neighborhoods.
The Young Leaders, led by Angie Barerra and Ana Freeburg, created murals, yarn art, a puppet show, gardened, and distributed food this summer from June 22 – July 31.
Semilla Artist Sandy Spieler, The Young Leaders and Phillips neighbors created an installation to help IMAGINE the Urban Farm Project at East 28th St. and 16th Ave. S.
Semilla Artists Angie Barerra and Jorge Amerigo worked with neighborhood youth to design and create utility box wraps for Midtown Phillips Neighborhood Association. They are located at the intersection of Bloomington Ave. S. and E. 26th St. and Chicago Ave. S. and E. 28th St.
In September, Semilla will be hosting another Peace Lantern Procession through Phillips on Saturday, September 26 with free public lantern-making workshops. Look for more details to come to join in making this bright spot on the Semilla website and Facebook page.
