The NC Counts Coalition’s Art Counts Mural Project, supported by John Rex Endowment and in partnership with the City of Raleigh, unveiled nine murals in hard to count tract areas throughout the city. The first mural was unveiled during the “Count NC Kids Week of Action” across the sidewalk at the Hillsborough St. YMCA. The youngest artist, an 11-year-old girl, was inspired to draw this because she wanted to raise awareness of the importance of counting kids in the 2020 Census. The other eight murals were recently unveiled on city buses, at the Raleigh train station, park walls, and buildings around Raleigh.
