About Markus Tracy

The success of community murals and my social practice work occurs when you explore new artistic strategies through community dialogue, social activism, and partnerships with outside agencies such as, city/county cultural facilities, non profit/for profit agencies, civic institutions, and public/private schools.

The community artist is "civically engaged" through partnerships in the understanding and celebration of cultural diversity, socioeconomic concerns, conflict resolution, celebration of past histories and current events that help shape individual communities and hopes for a productive and sustainable future.

The outcome of these 'shared experiences' empowers individuals and communities at-large to make positive choices fostering tolerance and respect. These relationships promote a positive outlet for artistic expression, community dialogue, access to social services, reduction of negative behavior among troubled teens, and life-skill exercises in the arts.
