Rob Marx - Live Your Dream, Paint Your Future
In February 2011, Conscious Alliance teamed up with the Stronghold Society and their friend, longtime supporter and ‘Art That Feeds’ artist, Robert Marx. Together, they hosted an art workshop for nine Native youth to create a large mural. Marx lead the workshop with the underlying message of the ‘the power of collaboration’.
Marx explained the power of collaboration in the world of art, and the importance of working together as a community and team. As he expressed different ideas, he also taught the participants different artistic mediums in which they could use on the mural. He encouraged the kids to use their individual experiences to create this influential collaboration. The youth came together and added their own creative piece to the mural, all surrounding the Stronghold Society’s logo. The group succeeded in expressing their individual ideas through personal introspection during the brainstorming activity and then through collaborative teamwork during the mural activity.
