My Story

The goal of the Elevate Arts Foundation Community School Mural Project(s) is to raise awareness for the visual arts as well as raise morale and build a culture that makes attending school exciting. The excitement will be felt in the hallways as well as seen in the schools’ improved attendance.

Homestead Mural Project began to

take shape late in 2022. Art by Zoe,

an alumnus of HSM got it all started 

with "Good Vibes Only," seen here.

GO Gators!

Childrens Home Society (CHS)

One of the oldest NFP's in the state of Florida, helped to kick start the mural project, by purchasing all the Kobra 

spray paint we needed.

Where the Wild Things Are.

Mr. Wilson, CEO of Elevate and an artist himself painted "Where the Wild Things Are," in an effort to pay tribute to CHS and the first book his mother read to him as a child.



Blast Off!

All artists were asked to focus on education and to infuse educational imagery within their work.

The hope is to inspire the entire student body at Homestead Middle School.
