The Story of Superstorm Sandy through Art

To mark the first anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, Shelby spoke to a group of teens in Brooklyn who are helping their communities recover in a different, but impactful, way. Since the storm hit, they’ve spent their extra hours brightening hard-hit neighborhoods by painting murals that tell the story of each community’s experience with the storm.

Check out their inspiring pieces in the slideshow below.

    i think it is good because their art will remind them of how the storm was back then and after the storm damage is done their wishes will come true

    It is great to see people expressing themselves in a way that others can relate. It is not easy to recover from a tragedy such as a natural disaster, but you will all make it through it. Keep your spirits high.

    I love this idea. I love drawing and when i can’t express myself through words, then my next thing is art. You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And it’s true. Some people have an easier time expressing themselves through the arts like painting or music than words. And sometimes that’s the only way they can.
    Having this is a way to remind people what happened and how far they have come from there.
