About This Project 

New York-based artist Chris Stain worked with Mural Arts youth at the NET Center at 2nd and Norris Streets, encouraging students to share their stories with one another. Stain and students then created a zine that documents their stories and includes their photo portraits. At the end of their sessions, Stain selected a series of portraits to create a whimsical stenciled mural depicting NET students as they wish to be seen.
