“African American Trailblazers” Mural Walk

May 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Hear from artist Kiara Sanders about her new mural African American Trailblazers, which was inspired by the work of Aaron Douglas. We’ll meet at the Ackland to see Modern Black Culture: The Art of Aaron Douglas then embark on our mural walk, stopping at various murals on the way to see African American Trailblazers, which is installed on the Walt’s Grill/Molly’s Gift Shop Building at 111 S. Merritt Mill Road. Throughout the event, we’ll hear from Sanders about her artistic influences (including Aaron Douglas), the role of public art by Black artists in our community, and how the Trailblazers mural came to be.

Space is limited. Please RSVP.
