mY family, MI community

YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids Vote Code: 66134

Youth participants have artistically expressed their family traditions and culture via a diversity-mural. Each child created a colorful image on a tile, prompted by the question “what makes my family special?” Mirrors are scattered throughout the mural, encouraging spectators to see themselves in the cultural expressions of the youth. Our display will provide both youth artists and ArtPrize spectators an exceptional visual representation of the beauty that results in our community when we encourage cultural diversity.

About YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids

The YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids is dedicated to fostering a sense of community among all of our youth program participants. Through this lens of cultural acceptance, we have prompted summer day campers across Grand Rapids to share their unique stories through the “mY family, MI community” ArtPrize display.
