Along the highways of the Navajo Nation, a roadside revival has begun. A landscape of craggy ridgelines and dusty hues is now dotted with the work of world-renowned and local street artists who have transformed the forgotten structures that line the pavement into celebrated murals that quite literally stop people in their tracks.

Seeing these once-abandoned roadside stalls revived by the impromptu stops of passersby is what inspired The Painted Desert Project, a public art initiative that connects artists with short-term residencies in the Navajo Nation. Watch as Randy Barton introduces us to Diné culture and this emerging movement.
