Local artist Jaylin Stewart unveiled her new mural at the Family & Children’s Place Service Center at 525 Zane St. in the Limerick neighborhood yesterday.
Jaylin worked with students from Engelhard Elementary School to craft the mural, which helped them recognize their own creativity, too. A local artist since 2013, Jaylin was selected as the inaugural Artist Catalyst Program recipient, which looks to develop sustainable infrastructure for socially-engaged public art around the country.
In addition to her new mural, you can see Jaylin’s work outside of Black Market KY, the Floyd County Library + more on her Instagram page.
Founded in 1883, the Family & Children’s Place works to address and prevent child abuse — and its services include the HANDS program that helps new parents adjust to parenthood + school-based services, advocacy, and counseling.
