My piece in the work is a woman of many tribes, she represents a combination of women from different cultures and races", shared Mia Green a participant on the program.
Stage #2 in our Ocean Shores Street Art Alley Way Project 6 local youths set forth on creating the next 19 meters of wall art to our already painted 19 meter mural from 2015 over the last school holidays. That's all up now 38 meters of youth art now graces the walls of the Ocean Shores Shopping Center!
