Homer, Alaska art program.

The art program in Homer, Alaska took on the task of painting a mural on an outside retaining wall in downtown Homer last summer. The Homer Council on the Arts (HCOA) developed a proposal and took it to the City Council for approval. The city provided $3,800 in funding and an artist has been hired to work with youths and oversee the project. The materials were paid for in advance and an aide and volunteers lined up to help, too.

This project has two main benefits for the city and residents of Homer. First, it gives the community's youth a way to express themselves in a positive way. Second, the project allows the city to spruce up downtown with a beautiful piece of urban artwork.
