RiseUP For Arts is partnering with 39 towns in Connecticut to create a large-scale mural for each year of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life by January 2022. Each mural will represent the messages, images, and symbols of Martin Luther King, Jr. and others who have made a difference in the pursuit for racial equity.
We are seeking the community’s input and participation to create one of these murals in Southington. We would like a broad representation of ideas for donated space for the mural, artists’ involvement, and most importantly the content. Who do you think has made a difference toward a more equitable and just world? What would you like portrayed in our town’s mural?
We invite you to take part in this art installation memorializing our commitment to racial equity and social justice. Learn more about the artistic inspiration behind this project and how other towns are acting on this opportunity with the above presentation from RiseUp Executive Director, Matt Conway.
