South Side youth transform blighted building with inspirational artwork

May 27, 2016

Fifteen-year-old Daniela Dominguez, a sophomore at Carmen High School of Science and Technology’s South Campus, set a goal this year to help her community.

“There is so much going on like rapes, assaults and other crimes and I just wanted to do something to help,” Dominguez said.

So she joined the Safe and Sound Youth Council at her school, located at 1712 S. 32nd St..

The members first set their sights on a foreclosed nuisance property at 1931 S. 6th St., which had become a magnet for crime. They chose to utilize art to transform the long-neglected duplex into a neighborhood symbol of hope.
