for years, people have said that they can’t get rid of the detention center because it’s very profitable and gives people jobs. In your opinion, what is a solution to that excuse?

Have you ever experienced negative reactions to your murals or aggression while painting them, and how do you deal??
Rizelle Rosales

thank you sai!! i wanted to ask - you mentioned that this work fuels the fire! making political work can be very draining, and bring up a lot of feelings and trauma response in the body. do you have a way of combatting this, or your process of working through it when it arises?

My friend’s sun (when he became 18) was suddenly picked up at home in Bellevue and send to this facility NDC in Tacoma. It was a mistake, they resolved it in a week with a help of immigration lawyer. But the boy got infected and sick in a few days sitting in NDC. There are unsanitary conditions in NDC. It is very unhealthy place. He was treated for a few months after coming home for various diseases. And he had skin problems for a year.

Wonderful work. What also gets raised, more generally, when considering these examples, is how can community arts be made integral to community development strategies?
mariah currey

How did you prepare the surface, what kind of paint, and what did you use for a clear coat? Geeky mural question!
Olga Shatunova
01:15:23
I have lots of outdoor and indoor paint in 1-gallon buckets in different colors, that I can give you for murals.
Olga Shatunova

Many people in Tacoma do not know about LNG problems. It would be great to have murals about that.
