The goal of the National Youth Art Movement (NYAM) is to provide youth all across America in neighborhoods besieged by gun violence with an opportunity to make their mark on the issue by using their city as a blank canvas to communicate to the entire community the impact on their lives.
NYAM is selling mini replicas of our billboard artwork in the form of postcards and now posters too!
NYAM’s interactive experiences with art are specially designed to deepen your understanding of the messages embedded in the artwork. Seeing this artwork come to life makes the reality of gun violence and its victims personally palpable even if it’s not your reality.
With every piece of art we design and share, we seek to build a worldwide coalition of empathetic humans who believe guns and violence are not solutions and who are ready to take a stand to promote peace among friends and strangers whenever possible.
