Artolution will begin its latest New York City mural and performance project in the East Village with youth who are currently seeking asylum in the United States after fleeing violence and conflict in Central and South America.

This first AR mural created by youth will be accompanied by a theatrical and dance performance during the closing event on Friday, July 19.
