The “Live Well” school mural is Thrive Collective’s second project sponsored by NeON Arts and Carnegie Hall, this time at the Betty Shabazz Campus in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The fifteen-week collaboration included students from both the Brownsville Collaborative Middle School and PS 298 who created an inspiring mural in the shared lunchroom. The mural features a portrait of Mrs. Shabazz, along with her words:
“I wish you power that equals your intelligence and your strength. I wish you success that equals your talent and determination. And I wish you faith.”
Together with its vibrant colors and characters, the mural reflects the fun, creative, and intellectually curious spirit of the students on campus. Art direction by Marissa Molina and Nico Collazo.
