Rafael Lopez Maybe Something Beautiful

How Art Transformed a Neighborhood

Rafael López is the illustrator and inspiration for the picture book MAYBE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL: HOW ART TRANSFORMED A NEIGHBORHOOD. There is so much to love about Rafael’s true story, and the picture book that captured the spirit of this neighborhood art project. We talk about how the community art project started, how the book came to be and how Rafael used a variety of styles to illustrate the coming together of individual creativity.
