Color Squad is a collective of teen artists that design and implement public art that addresses a need in the community. The group was voted Best Muralist in Austin in 2019 in the Austin Chronicle’s Best Of poll.
Past projects have included a prominent community mural in East Austin in partnership with Six Square and Cap Metro, a large-scale mural at the Central Texas Food Bank, an art installation at People’s Community Clinic, a community mural in Lott Pocket Park in partnership with GirlForward Austin, and the restoration of the iconic “Austin Postcard Mural” in South Austin.
