    Tom, I really enjoyed visiting your website tonight. Thanks for the Facebook “Friday Food Trucks” share.

    The Favela Art Project(s) is a very positive creative activity for the people living in the communities–Gives the people hope, pride, and is a tremendous educational opportunity for teaching and learning about art(s), and giving hopeless ghetto kids an opportunity to create as real artisans, then live in their “new” artistic creations. 🙂
    The people develop pride with media coverage and public interest & support; where before there were only dingy walls to harbor idle young minds & their families–just going thru the essential paces of everyday life in a large city slum. Now, when looking upon their homes and community, the people have a sense of being unique individuals living in a unique artistic environment, and seeing glorious COLORS & LIFE! 🙂
    Thank you for sharing! 🙂
