Addressing racial wealth gaps

Our Commitment

Peyton S. Russell

Bush Fellowship
24 months

Minneapolis, MN — My fellowship involves the study of graffiti art and its effects on people, community and culture. The popularity of graffiti and street art has increased and is in heavy demand, yet most people do not want to address the reality of it. The focus of my fellowship is on engaging artists, parents, city officials, civil authorities, schools, community centers and arts organizations to publicly supporting this art form so that it may be taught safely in institutions across the state of Minnesota.
