Artist Bree Stallings rarely slows down. In the past two months, the artist who led the way on the “We Are Hip Hop” mural at Camp North End has painted new murals in Gastonia and Hope Haven in Charlotte … and now at Time Out Youth, a nonprofit that serves LGBTQ youth from age 11 to 20.
With help from a Cultural Vision Grant from the Arts & Science Council and a $1,000 “Bear HUG” grant from Charlotte Is Creative, Stallings mobilized 20 local youth to paint a new mural on the side of Time Out Youth’s building on Monroe Road over the course of three days last week.
The mural is the culmination of Holding Space, a creative initiative focused on developing identity-based workshops. The stories and insights shared by workshop participants inspired the mural they created.
