About We Art a Village

We Art a Village is a series of community workshops guided by Justin Perry that will transform public spaces using micrography murals to connect the community to their neighborhoods. This project will bring together local youth to positively transform public spaces, provide a visual history of a community, communicate important messages, and shift perceptions.

Micrography artwork is created from text that forms an image when viewed at a distance. The murals include visual art and creative writing created in community workshops with the goal of creation, storytelling, personal history, beautification, and spoken word.
