From Her Beacon

Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, Columbia Point

The Institute welcomed kids and families to participate in a mural-painting workshop inspired by the Institute’s exhibition From Her Beacon, created by James Hobin and his students from Boston International Newcomers Academy (BINcA) and on view through May 31, 2017. BINcA is a Boston Public School that embraces new immigrant adolescent English language learners and their families.

As part of this workshop, the young artists from BINcA discussed their mural series that celebrates the inclusiveness of America. The workshop also featured a screening of BINcA’s short film, “Our Next Chapter,” produced by 826 Boston.

This program was a part of ArtWeek Boston.
