Austin American-Statesman features Uvalde Love

Apr 3, 2023

Hannah Ortega from the Austin American-Statesman got hands-on with Wanda Montemayor at her south Austin studio to dive into the details of the Uvalde Love Project.

People are forgetting about Uvalde, and Wanda Montemayor said the community can feel it. She said residents also feel a heaviness that's lingered since the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School, which left 19 children and two teachers dead. All Uvalde residents want is to go back to everyday life. They don't want to be known as the school shooting town. Montemayor, an art therapist in Austin, kept that in mind when thinking about how to help the Uvalde community. Now she's using group and art therapy to build a mosaic mural and keep others from feeling alone.
