This Social Justice Project is a wonderful collaboration between students and teachers at Whittier ece-8 in Denver, Colorado, the RedLine Art Laboratory, and Rock Thoughts.
RedLine is a diverse urban laboratory where art, education and community converge. Their vision is to foster forms of social practice in the arts that inspire inquiry and catalyze change. This project is part of their Educational Partnership Initiative for the Creative (EPIC) Arts program.
The rocks will be on display at RedLine starting on May 12th. If you are in the neighborhood, we encourage you to stop by and show your support.
Can you identify these social justice leaders?
