"Founded in NYC in 1996, Groundswell promotes collaborative art making by combining community activism and expression"

Social Work Degree.org - November 2014

Founded in New York City in 1996, Groundswell seeks to promote collaborative art making by combining community activism and personal expression. The organization, led by a number of artists, educators, and activists, brings together artists, youth, and community organizations with the intention of citywide beautification through murals and art installation projects. Local established artists lead smaller community groups through the mural making process, and have contributed to numerous citywide art installations including Recovery Diaspora by Swoon and the South Brooklyn mural, which was facilitated by artist Bayenga Kialeuke.
