Urban Gallery Installation
Youth Art Team created an original installation in a Waterloo Center for the Arts Urban Gallery!
The urban galleries are underutilized retail spaces where artists display their work, exposing more people to the arts while adding beauty and interest to the downtown area until a new business moves in. Students uncovered the downtown’s history by listening to firsthand stories from community members, and explored the ways public art can affect change.
The Youth Art Team Urban Gallery Installation is a visible contribution to revitalization efforts in downtown Waterloo.

The Youth Art Team Urban Intervention project was supported, in part, by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts and the R.J. McElroy Trust.
