Looking for a UW-Parkside student or alumnus to design and paint a mural that will become an integral part of our physical space within the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

This mural should represent your power and voice to capture the themes of social justice, civic engagement, and more than anything tell a story. The mural should evoke dialogue and speak on the power of the people for social change.
