Bigger, Bolder, Brighter

Mattie Weiss ’01 and Camila Leiva ’09 were among a cohort of 12 artists who collaborated on a 4,000-square-foot mural in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, where the American Indian Movement began in 1968.

Led by the Power of Vision Mural Project, the mural was developed in collaboration with more than 80 community members to highlight the history, voices, and priorities of neighborhood residents. Friends Weiss and Leiva are longtime organizers and educators, and both balance work in the nonprofit sector with their art. Learn more about the mural at
