The Naco-Bisbee Mural Project was a bi-national public art initiative, focused on promoting better public health at the US-Mexico border and bringing two communities together through artistic collaboration. Grade school students, artists, and community members from both Bisbee, Arizona, USA and Naco, Sonora, Mexico worked together to design and paint murals, promoting good health and bridging the social capital of these two communities.

Nathan traveled to Naco in the spring of 2016 to help make plans for the project, funded through Indiegogo. If you are interested in what happened over the course of his (short) time there, check out his trip diary.

The project, completed in a partnership with Kaylee Hicks and Bisbee resident Tom Carlson, resulted in eight murals in Naco, and at the time of this writing the project continues to thrive in the Naco and Bisbee communities. Please see the presentation below for an overview of the project.
