On Thursday, October 13 from 4-6pm Community Solutions Foundation Project of Dispute Resolution Center will host an Opening Reception for the YOUTH ART  Mural project at 280 Broadway, Newburgh, NY. Eleven large scale murals and paintings will be unveiled. The artwork was created by the city’s youth starting at an outdoor community event that took place at La Vida Garden at 59 Chambers St., Newburgh on April 30.

Throughout the summer several of the participants worked at the Center for Hope at 280 Broadway to finish the work. The project was facilitated by Hudson River Visions, the Urban Farmers League, and M.U.M. (Mothers 4 Upward Movement) and was sponsored by Community Solutions Foundation Project of Dispute Resolution Center, an organization who’s mission is to provide opportunities to young adults for building personal capacity and improved quality of life. The community is invited to come and view the artwork, meet the artists, and share in the celebration.
