See murals in the making, inspired by Alaska Native heritage represented in the Smithsonian and Anchorage Museum collections. Arizona artists Dwayne "Dwayno Insano" Manuel (Onk Akimel O’odham) and Rene "Strike 1" Garcia (Tohono O’odham) with Alaska artist Arielo "Bisco" Taylor (Unangax/African American) teach Anchorage youth about creative communication through this community-building, public art form.

Urban Interventions motivates and empowers youth through creative, healthy expression. This public program series is organized by the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center and Anchorage Museum. Local youth will join the program through assistance from community partners: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska, Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Covenant House Alaska and Kennecott Youth Center (JBER).
