The Marcus Jewish Community Center is holding a public gallery opening at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 30, to launch a display of eight pro-Israel graffiti murals.
Nearly 70 Atlanta-area teenagers created the 4-by-5-foot murals on March 19 as part of J-Serve, the International Day of Jewish Youth Service, when hundreds of local teens performed community service projects.
The graffiti murals will be on display at the Katz Family Main Street Gallery inside the Marcus JCC, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody, from April 30 through May 31.
The teen co-chairs of J-Serve came up with the idea of using graffiti to express feelings about the Jewish homeland. As part of the project, the teen artists were trained on how to be Israel advocates.
The event was a collaboration among StandWithUs, an Israel education organization, Artists 4 Israel, an artistic rights organization that advocates Israel and its freedoms, and the Marcus JCC.
The Katz Family Main Street Gallery is located along the main corridor of the Zaban-Blank Building and is accessible whenever the building is open.
