We are joining forces with WFP USA supporting the mission of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP, 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate), to create a series of murals around the United States dedicated to “Zero Hunger” (SDG2). Our Six murals will raise awareness and mobilize action to combat global food insecurity and, in the US, food injustice that disproportionately impacts African-Americans communities. The series is made possible by Kellogg, a UN Global Compact member.
The first mural, created by a duo of street artists, Axel Void and Reginald O’Neal, is located on the mythical Orpheum Theater in New Orleans. The second mural created by Artist Dragon76 on the Hampton Inn by Hilton’s 5-story, 250 foot wall is now the largest mural of the city. The third mural created by Victor Ash, in Oakland, on the Marriott’s massive 21-story wall is now the city’s tallest mural. The fourth mural created by Carlos Alberto GH in Detroit, on the 19-story wall of the James Murphy Hall of Justice, is the biggest 3-D mural of the USA. Additional Zero Hunger murals will be created in Washington DC and Battle Creek.
To hear the artist speak about his creative process or simply read the story behind each mural above.
The app also helps you locate the murals closest to you and make creative selfies to share with us and the artist.
