Austin Weekly News: Kehrein Celebrates Black Youth with Barrett Keithley Mural

Here's an excerpt of some great media coverage for our mural unveiling, in a September 13, 2023 article in the Austin Weekly News by Francia Garcia Hernandez:

"Chicago artist Barrett Keithley stood with open arms before young elementary and middle school students from Austin-based Catalyst Circle Rock Wednesday morning.

Behind him, glimpses of colorful patterns and musical notes caught the students’ eyes, awaiting to see Keithley’s work. To the side, a team of co-artists, arts leaders, supporters and elected officials waited to hear about his latest mural on the West Side.

'The beauty that I see awakens the power in me,' Keithley said, asking the young crowd to repeat those words after him before unveiling the mural. "
