Los Angeles, California – KIPP LA Prep Middle School in Boyle Heights painted a mural entitled “Cuidela” or “take care of it” in collaboration with an 8th grade science class. This mural discusses ancient Chumash creation stories, Aztec mythology of the rain and the rivers, and images painted by youth of their experiences with water. Pipelines and plastic bottles symbolize the privatization and commodification of water. Birds and marine life symbolize life’s resiliency.
