They designed murals for the Public Market, City Hall, and the traffic box on the corner of Hudson avenue and upper Falls Blvd. Kaylon has also studied music recording and created the read 2 record program for youth at the Phyllis Wheatley library and youth in the I’m Ready program. Since 2009, Kaylon has been actively promoting this program, getting youth involved in doing something positive, and keeping them off the streets.
