Our art crew 

Alfonso Chavez

Art Crew Coordinator for Flowers & Bullets. Since high school, was inspired to do work within the community and has worked closely with community and organizers at the grassroots level, to develop lesson plans and facilitate workshops as a way to address social ills and create preventative alternatives for underserved/at risk youth all rooted in community health, cultural, social justice and the arts.

Jonny Ballesteros

Flowers & Bullets member/artist involved in coordinating local art events focused on engaging the community. Although he’s been an artist all his life, working with FBC has given him better direction & taught him art is much bigger than oneself. Will focus on underserved communities & extend reach to those who need it most.
