Celebrated artist Shepard Fairey (of the Obama “Hope” poster fame) guided more than 100 young New Yorkers in creating a powerful 40-foot long mural that made its public debut at the World Financial Center this month.  The mural, A Positive Thought Cannot Be Denied, expresses the kids’ views on teen violence, the environment, education and other issues relating to social justice.

Coverage included WNET Sunday Arts (video below), Time Out New York, Village Voice, Time Out New York Kids, Gothamist,, Newsday, Curated, and The Dirt Floor.
