City Heights's Kids Transform Alleys and Storefronts Into Art Pieces

This past Saturday a unique collaborative of Mid City Heights area youth, local professional artists and community organizations put the finishing touches on one of their larger art installation project located on University Avenue and 45th Street.

CHALK (City Heights Art Lanes by Kids) teamed up with the City Heights Business Improvement Association to transform deteriorated storefronts into exciting art installations. The program is unique in that the designs and themes are proposed by a team of Hoover High School students working with professional artists. This collaboration confers with business and property owners who must then agree to participate and help maintain the installations.

"The process of design and research into the selected theme and the dialogue with business owners is an important aspect of this program" noted lead artist Pete Evaristo. "These kids learn about different cultures in this diverse community by working together and working in their community."

Over the past two months the team has touched up the award winning ARK (Alleys Reclaimed by Kids) Art project which three years ago transformed a nearby one block blighted alley into a virtual outdoor art gallery and helped to extend this gallery onto University Avenue by converting several nearby aging storefronts into colorful statements about the environment and the community.
