‘Taking something dirty and making it beautiful’

This is Charles Jean-Pierre, a Haitian-American artist who grew up in Chicago. I met him at a community project to paint the Edgewood community mural wall. Dozens of artists came out for the all-day ‘paint jam. Charles was a fine art major in college but he says he got his start doing street art. Street art, he says, is “about taking something dirty and making it beautiful.”

    I love this! I need 2 websites constructed for money-generating ideas. I am 60 yoa, in disability and yearning for a better life for myself and Loved Ones. I have incremental acumen in website construction and I need an expert to help me to launch these two projects one has to do with industrial hemp and the other has to do with providing information for citizens to locate their money that’s being kept with several organizations and away from their pocketbooks. I have constructed a logo for one of them- but I’m sure even it can be improved ! ??? I need your help. Thanks.
