"We wanted to create an art piece that make people think of a world with love, justice and freedom for ALL. The Earth is shaped like a heart with four hands cradling it to represent people of all different races and backgrounds. The box has over 30 flags from different countries around the world to showcase unity. The words 'Justice' and 'Libertad' are important words that are proven difficult for most Americans to understand."

Jessica Beas is the Community Leadership Coach at Friends of the Family. I have always loved art though I never fully committed to pursuing it as a career. The Youth Leading Change group collectively came up with the concept and I simply transferred their ideas on to paper. We only hope that we get the opportunity to represent the youth of the future and help guide the community to obtain the equality we so desperately need!

"The two indigeneous women on the front and back panels represent Tataviam women. The right panel has a sun sitting above the valley, to symbolize the sun rising in the east. It is known that Tataviam peoples built their houses facing east to receive the sun in the morning. That is how they got the name 'people facing the sun'. The left panel has cacti to show Native resistance. This piece has a surrealist nature to it but not to as fictionalize Native peoples, "

My work centers around the concepts of Art, Love and Revolution. My work is inspired by feminine energy and centers brown women in the spotlight. It takes a surrealist tone so as to express the mythical nature of women as creators. I also draw elements from nature to express the relationship between earth and the feminine.

"This design is to remind people that no matter the color of our skin or our sexual preference that each and every one of us matters.  in a world with such diversity, we are all one!"
I am a Los Angeles native, born and raised in Van Nuys.  My focus is on creating art that is colorful and bold.  I want my art to make people think about what is going on in the world around us, as well as being nostalgic.

This image features a quote from Henri Matisse that has helped me continue my journey as an artist despite all of the overwhelming obstacles. It took me a very long time to realize that the most important tool that anyone can have is courage. You need courage to follow your dreams, courage to fight for what you believe in and most importantly courage to be yourself.  What I realized about all of the artists and people I admired is that they all had the courage to believe in themselves first. My hopes for this street box art is that someone will see it and hopefully get that extra push of encouragement."

My name is Brenda Cibrian. I received my BFA from California State University Fullerton. I approach every project with an open mind and aim to keep things as light-hearted as possible. My art is inspired by fantasy art, surrealist artists and Japanese manga comics. I also sometimes work with non-profit organizations on social justice projects.

"'Praise to Pachamama' is a design that celebrates home and her beauty. It showcases our surrounding mountains that hug our valley and our sun that shines on us all year round. It radiates light with a color palette of our sun setting along our coastline."

I am a self-taught artist born and raised in Pacoima of the San Fernando Valley. I create art full of color, inspired by the sun, my love for nature and the woman spirit.

"It starts out abstract to give a dream like aesthetic in reference to Martin Luther King Jr's'I have a Dream' speech. A finger print symbolizes how pole identify each other too often by the color of their skin. Next is a comment on how much the land has changed. With cities and neighborhoods structured a certain way, it becomes difficult to know and realize the problems of race and identity, and how they are social constructs."

My name is Arely De La Luz and I am at senior at CSUN. I am majoring in Art and will graduate in the Fall 2020. Art has always been a passion of mine. My focus is Animation, but I still hold a love for fine arts. My goal is to run my own studio so I could make my own art because I enjoy the freedom to choosing what kind of projects I want to work on.

"Nezzy, the character, has no fears including when expressing herself through music. Just how bubbles make kids happy, her music makes people feel the same way. This piece is for everyone in "The Arts" who feels afraid to show their own work because of any insecurities. Hopefully, when people see this on the street, they will be reminded to be confident and willing to take risks."

Meaghan Alfonso, a.k.a. meaggymegs, has been creating art for most of her life. While she currently expresses herself making digital artwork, she is also an acrylic painter. She attended the Art Institute in San Francisco where she also learned how to animate. She move to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2020 and has been working freelance.

"I designed this piece with a reminder that we are all accountable for the well being of others. This time has shown us that respect and love for others is needed in order to protect them and their lives. I wanted it to be graphic and speak to the beauty that still exists around us, highlighting optimism and change."

My name is Katie. I am originally from London. I have lived and worked in Los Angeles for the last 10 years, set decorating and art directing short films, commercials and music videos, as well as painting, creating surface designs and painting public art. 

I am strongly influenced by my English and Sri Lankan roots. I get giddy over obscure flowers, plants and birds, and am fascinated by the parts of life that become ritualistic to us varied beings.
