Middle School Students at PS/IS 87 Campaign for Publicolor’s Return
February 1, 2018
Publicolor has returned to PS/IS 87 in Middle Village, Queens, and we have the school’s students to thank! After Publicolor transformed the school’s lobby with two dozen eager students from grades 4-8 last spring, the students wrote their Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley letters, urging her to support Publicolor’s return.
Crowley listened to the students and funded phase 2 of the school’s transformation, once again through the Cultural After School Adventure (CASA) initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Publicolor returned on January 20 for another six weeks to transform the school’s third floor. We couldn’t be prouder of the students’ ability to create change, and the students are excited to work with Publicolor again. Here’s to using design for social change!
