Power & Purpose: The History of Community Murals
April 6, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Coinciding with the National Academy of Design’s open call for proposals for the Abbey Mural Prize, this panel conversation–co-organized with Groundswell and moderated by their Executive Director Robyne Walker Murphy–will look at the complicated and community-driven history of murals as an act of liberation. Joining Robyne are panelists selected by Groundswell: Sophia Dawson, visual artist; Joe Matunis, artist, and director of Los Muralistas de El Puente; and Victor A. Saint-Hilaire, multidisciplinary artist. Particularly interested in distinguishing between commercial murals and community murals, the talk will focus on community buy-in and collective voice as important factors in a mural’s success.
Reservations are requested; RSVP here.
