The report examines the nurturing of artists to be leaders, the challenges and opportunities they face, and profiles the work of many artists across the country. Not Just Murals draws upon a literature review, interviews with 15 artists leading in different facets of community development, and conversations with experts who have unique insights into regional and national context and trends.
