February 2021

Artists For Humanity's mission is to provide under-resourced Boston teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. This year we are celebrating 30 years of bridging economic, racial, and social divisions by introducing young people's creativity to the business community and enriching urban communities through the power of public art.


To celebrate Black History Month AFH created Then & Now, a public art live stream projection, honoring the abolitionists who envisioned and fought for more just and equitable world, pairing their visionary words with AFH teen artwork in response to the ongoing struggle for racial justice.


Then & Now will be projected onto the facade of the Boston Public Library and live streamed on Saturday, February 27 (with a rain date of February 28).
