Art Mural Missions Camps

I was downtown yesterday and got an chance to go and see the many new murals artists created. I didn’t see any with a Christian message or that seemed to create peace and beauty. Murals/art has the power to change people. Here is an insert from Charisma magazine’s article about art changing a violent neighborhood;


The scarred intersection on Chicago’s north side was the battleground for a dozen rival street gangs… But in the space of a few weeks, the violence subsided and the trade from the drug houses disappeared. What brought about this startling transformation? Incredibly, a piece of art-a vivid mural depicting creation’s beauty, sin’s destructive power and Jesus’ love for all races.

Julian Lukins, CharismaNews (2008)
