New Schools for Baton Rouge was proud to host the 2019 Convening, “Education as a Civil Right,” which showcased student artwork from a juried show centered on the event theme. NSBR received 38 submissions from Mentorship STEAM Academy student in Cynthia Oby’s art class. The students were instructed to choose an issue that is important to them or relevant in their community.
The murals can be found at the first floor of the Shaw Center for Arts (100 Lafayette Street) until the end of the year. A big thank you goes to our partner, the Walls Project, for helping coordinate the call for artists.
