Students paint a mural as part of “Dibujando Nuestro Pueblo” (“Drawing Our Village”) a yearlong project at Frank Porter Graham Bilingüe elementary school in Chapel Hill. The project focused on ideas related to culture, home, identity, and unity and culminated in the mural in the school courtyard unveiled June 1. The project came together through a partnership between assistant principal José Nambo, school counselor Barbie Garayúa-Tudryn and two local artists, Mary Carter Taub and Amy Keenan Amago, who are also parents of students at the school. The project was funded by the school PTA, the Orange County Arts Commission and the Grassroots Program of the N.C. Arts Council.
