Get Up Get Down (GUGD) focuses on creating art through activism and activism through public art.
Speak your mind through public art! We use a variety of art forms–from murals to metal sculpture to paper mache–to investigate issue that are relevant to you and your communities. Build leadership and learn about the intersections of creativity, community and social justice while creating fabulous works of art. This fall come help create the town’s newest mural on the Rao’s red wall!
Check out the 3 murals GUGD members have created:
- South wall of Food For Thought Books
- West wall of the Amherst Cinema Center Building
- Inside Amherst Regional High School next to the cafeteria
Beginning January 2, GUGD will meet at the East Street School in Amherst
Open to youth in grades 8-12
