May 30, 2015 was set to be the first painting day for DAMA's first ever mural! Yet...the weather had another plan... Fortunately, a strong group of artists, Zion City members, and youth were present inside the center's cozy confines to discuss the vision for the mural.

Lavie Raven of the University of Hip-Hop in Chicago led the discussions, people drew their plans, and the community came together to develop concepts and images that are currently being strewn across a Zion City exterior wall.
