Studio Apprentices working with Vy (MICA MFACA Student) on a panel for the Bea Gaddy Family Center @beagaddy
We are still accepting applications for visual arts instructors to facilitate classes for youth who are currently being held in detention. BYA runs programs (art, job readiness, and dialogue circles) INSIDE four days a week. We aim to develop relationships with young people so we can advocate for them in court, reconnect with them in the community, employ them at our Community Studio, and connect them to other resources and programs. Info at bmoreyoutharts.org
This fall and winter we will be at some sales where you can grab our latest book!

Texas has scheduled the execution of our client #RodneyReed for November 20. Will you show you support for Rodney and against his execution by signing the petition in our bio above?
Yesterday, the Innocence Project filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Rodney, who has been on Texas death row for over 20 years for a murder for the murder of Stacey Stites in 1996. He has been denied DNA testing which could prove his innocence. Three forensic experts have submitted affidavits that the original time of death is inaccurate, which makes the timeline for Rodney killing Stites implausible. New witnesses including Stites’s own cousin have come forward and corroborated Reed’s claim that they knew that Reed and Stites were romantically involved.
Show your support against his execution by adding your name to the petition in our a bio above and tagging a friend below.
