Through these community-based public art projects, a post-conflict rural village in El Salvador explored its past and dreamed of a future of peace and stability; orphans in Lima’s rough suburbs transformed their home into a colorful masterpiece; and street youth from around the world created murals together in Rio de Janeiro, finding creative ways to connect with those with whom they shared a common struggle but not a common language.
