Over the summer, WCO held an art camp for “at risk kids “ages 5-13, where 23 children participated in the completion of a mural, “Young Voices, Big Visions,” led by the well-known Nashville artist, Jairo Prado. The project took place over a three-week period; with the focus of the mural being a reflection of the youth in their present community as well as their future self-portraits in the community. They were able to complete a new mural thanks to the efforts of Hickory Hollow's Jerry's Artarama, Woodbine Community Organization (WCO), the Frist Center, and Funds for At-Risk Youth grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission (TAC).
