From the summer of 2021 to Autumn 2022, we have served nearly 100 youth. In January 2023, our kids will have an opportunity to show their mobile work at a top notch gallery, Abel Contemporary Gallery in Stoughton. But much of their work is stationary, such as the two murals at the Goodman Community Center led by Liubov Szwako and the one he lead at Vera Court Neighborhood Center. But the mural the youth of the UW Odyssey Project cranked out this summer in the back alley of the UW Partnership Building is mobile and will be part of the upcoming show.

Goodman Community Center, Fall session. The kids were on fire. Terrence Adeyanju led them in portrait drawing and collaborative drawings and just putting a pen to a piece of paper with what he calls, "Permission to Feel." Grace Ruo, a spoken word poet laureate, led the kids in poetry and drawing from verse.
