'I Am Art' culminates with Window Rock mural
By Karen Francis
It took artists and students a few days to complete the mural which has a theme of ceremonial elements.
The theme celebrates youth and art, especially since many young people have been practicing different forms of art such as fashion, music, photography and more, Kimberly Smith of the Indigenous Youth Collective said.
Dozens of colors were available for the artists to spray paint the message of celebrating youth. Most of the mural is a landscape with the sky as the backdrop for several figures that are dancing and making music.
