Greetings Neighbors, Friends, and Young Masters’ Family,

 

Art has played an important role in our healing during a very challenging time. It not only provided a source of entertainment and joy, but also gave us the opportunity to advocate for the change that we want to see in our communities and make our voices heard on a global stage. Certainly The Young Masters have understood the superpowers of art for a long time.

 

As we continue fighting for a more peaceful, diverse, loving and just world, art will be an important tool in our arsenal. Thanks to your continued support, we are at the starting line of a very exciting new adventure.

 

We are thrilled to announce that the Young Masters has been selected to activate the Monroe St Bridge with art. Thanks to the generous support of the DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) we are able to build on a legacy that began more than 20 years ago.

 

We invite you to join us in this new adventure in public art. We want your handprints on the bridge. It is our chance to let our art, do its part!
