Project Description

"Yes She Can!" is a mural that celebrates the relationship between the Bronx community and its environment. This mural proudly and boldly displays the words, “You do not have to move out of your neighborhood to live in a better one.” This mural portrays two strong women towering over neighborhood buildings while bringing nature and light into their community, emphasizing female strength and leadership. This is a powerful message not only for the women of Hunts Point, but for the entire South Bronx community. One of the women displayed in this mural is planting an avocado seed, a plant that is notoriously difficult to sprout; it requires the same patience, consistency, and love required to help a community to blossom.
