Award winning artist, SELENE is selected to work on a national anti-drug project called The Just Like Me. This movement is a drug prevention and character development program that empowers teens to take their own peer community regarding drug use behavior. The program brings kids face-to-face with young recovering addicts where they learn that drug addiction does NOT discriminate and that even casual drug use can lead to addiction and unimaginable consequences. Through an audio-visual exhibit and live interactive assembly, students are motivated to participate in a community art project that enables them to voice their own concerns regarding substance abuse.
SELENE, recognized for her Positive Graffiti & "I AM" series in NYC was selected for the project by Founder and Creative Director, Rob Goldman. “It was SELENE’s work that inspired me and years later this idea was born,” says Rob. Although SELENE’s graffiti art is positive, the 6 kiosks housing the traveling audio-visual exhibit will be painted by SELENE. A community-based art project will be held in each city as this exhibit travels from place to place. SELENE will personally appear to help the people of the community create positive graffiti as a way to embody the spirit of the Just Like Me Project.
“Every community and its schools have its issues. I am thrilled to help create a Positive Graffiti Monument with the people in their community as a reminder and voice to be strong, to be free, and to be loved, “ says SELENE. Like Sheppard Fairy, we artists can make a positive impact globally with art.
Communities can request the exhibit to travel to their schools, they can donate and even participate in finding their wall or structure to create this community-art project as a way to unite and foster strength for individuals facing pressure among their peers.
