Vanka Educational Programs

Maxo Vanka’s murals provide a unique opportunity for visitors of all ages to learn, connect, and create. We build our programs using a co-created social justice framework that centers and prioritizes community, equity, and accessibility.

Sharing Stories

We are continuously working to inform and inspire through the lens of Maxo Vanka’s art, while also making room to hear and share your stories. We want to highlight the projects, activities, collaborations, and communities here.

Vanka Murals’ educational outreach is made possible in part by The Grable Foundation.
