The Mobile County Commission, James T. Strickland Youth Center, Mobile Arts Council, and Alabama Contemporary Art Center worked together to bring awareness to the works produced by our young citizens. These programs - a collaboration of efforts by Judge Edmond Naman, Photographer Devin Ford, Artist Riley Brenes and over 25 future community leaders - highlight the courage of our young citizens and their desires to make Mobile a safer and more beautiful place to live through the power of Public Art.


Turning two local building from "Blight to Bright" and courageously baring their souls through film- these young people will display their talents, along with informative and interactive pieces, in the Mobile Art Council's Danielle Juzan Gallery. 

Meet the artists on ArtWalk night, September 8, from 6 - 9 PM. The show will be available to see from 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays throughout the month of September.
