The Know Youth Media has brought its young artists together with The Muralistics and Youth For Christ to create a new mural to go up on the wall of Louie Kee Market, a family-owned business with over 87 years of history and service to West Fresno residents. The store is currently managed by Kevin Louie and his siblings whose grandparents came to Fresno around the early 1920s by covered wagon and opened the store in 1923.
The mural is a first step in a long-term initiative to promote healthy and positive youth participation in the community. This effort is made possible by a grant from Building Healthy Communities, an initiative of The California Endowment.
