Description: Over the fall of 2016, teens in our After School Matters program at Broadway Armory explored the ideas of identity and diversity during our design workshops, then they combined their thoughtful sketches into a masterpiece that showcases the beauty of multiculturalism. In the spring of 2017, they finally created and installed the mural at Colvin House in Edgewater.
