Nicole's Story

Nicole Mueller feels an obligation both as a resident and an artist to give back some of what she’s learned and gained during her four years in Baltimore. For her, that means getting to know her neighbors and using her time and talents to be involved in her community in a positive way.

Nicole is interning with the No Boundaries Coalition as their public art project coordinator. The resident-led organization’s mission is Deconstructing Boundaries, Reconstructing Community among the neighborhoods of Central West Baltimore. Nicole is working with the coalition to brainstorm project ideas and organize a collaborative art project that will be installed throughout the neighborhoods.

Her internship and participation in the Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape program remind her of the importance of each person’s role in their community. The experiences have inspired her to reevaluate her personal goal of becoming a successful fine artist. She is broadening her goals to include sharing her creative talents and working collaboratively to affect positive change in her community.
