About Publicolor: Publicolor was founded in 1996 by Ruth Lande Shuman with the mission to counter our inner- city public schools’ alarming dropout rate by engaging young people in their education through a continuum of 5 design- based programs, academic support and teaching career readiness skills. Publicolor directly addresses two of the root causes of poverty in America: the under-education of public school students and their lack of preparedness for the workforce. Unique to Publicolor—and central to its mission—is the beautification and revitalization of public and civic spaces through the hard work of our students and the power of paint, color, design, and collaborations that engage students and the community as a whole.

All proceeds go toward Publicolor’s mission to engage disconnected students in their education, while teaching them strong and transferable work habits so they are prepared to be productive in both college and career.
