Sadie Shaw, SaludArte Project Manager shares her ultimate hope for the participants of the SaludArte program.
As the project manager for SaludArte, it is incredible to witness community members who are at first hesitant to talk about art, then transform into passionate art advocates for their community. I’ve noticed that Artists are eager to work more closely with communities who need their stories told.
My ultimate hope is that the people of Pima County, who do not normally have an opportunity to interact with public art or artists, will ultimately see themselves, their community and art in a new light. This program is truly paving the way to give marginalized communities a seat at the table in the public art process.
