colourize your CITY

The incredible artists of Favela Painting are committed to making Brazilian favelas (Portuguese word for slum) more aesthetically pleasing where they otherwise would have been neglected due to racism, poverty, or other social barriers. Favela Painting also solicits help from local youth and the community at large to work with them to accomplish their grand scale art works. In doing so, the community benefits from income during the project and increased national attention after the project is completed. Below is the fantastic Santa Marta square in Brazil. Check out their website to see their other amazing projects and learn how you can become a partner. Do you think Minneapolis would let me paint my house like this? Tan is seeming incredibly dull comparatively!
