Juniper Creative Arts is husband and wife artist team Will Kasso Condry and Jennifer Herrera Condry. We are multi-talented artists with 40 years of combined experience as facilitators, creatives, curators, visionaries, educators, and community organizers.
Juniper Creative Arts is a community mural artist team and a healing arts initiative. Our work and vibe is inspired by our cultural and spiritual lineages, urban art, Hip-Hop culture, the mystical and the natural worlds. Juniper Creative Healing Arts features original creations born from the conscious minds of our creative family.
As an artist team, we facilitate community mural projects with K-12 schools, colleges/universities, and community-based organizations. We use art and murals to lift up the voices, images, and people that are too often left in the margins. Our collective work demonstrates the power of community and what happens when we pause to witness one another and listen across lines of power and difference.
Our goal is to bring the heart and soul back into art and creativity. We create to motivate and inspire. Art is used to heal and bring people together. Our creations are meant to awaken the sacredness within you.
We will facilitate an interactive workshop with stakeholders and/or community members that will inform the design for the mural, create a base concept, and direct a hands-on community paint day. After the community paint day, we will refine and detail the mural to completion.
