A Saturday in Ferguson

Saturday was a great day in Ferguson. In a warm November day, dozens of volunteers transformed a boarded up main street into a colorful celebration. 

MATA partnered with the Ferguson Youth Initiative (FYI) to ‪#‎BeautifyFerguson‬ with positive messages. Other artists showed up in conjunction with the "I Love Ferguson" group. This effort to transform a negative symbol into something positive was greatly appreciated by the local businesses and residents. 

Ribbons Of Hope‬ (a collaborative community art project) was also present with a table. Passersby created ribbons nonstop to spread a message of hope and peace for the Ferguson community.
