In Conversation with Black Lives Matter Artists on Sept. 10

The Palo Alto Public Art Commission is hosting a panel discussion on Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. with eight of the local artists who were selected to paint the Black Lives Matter mural on Hamilton Avenue. Completed in June, the Black Lives Matter mural is one aspect of a larger City dialogue taking place on race and equity and connects to the City’s thoughtful conversations on the role of policing. The artists will share their inspirations of their work as part of the City’s mural installation and share their perspectives on the Black Lives Matter Movement. Those lined up for this conversation so far are: Masuma Ahmed, @elizabethdfoggie @stewyrobertson @burn_by_urn@iloniarts @shiraaz @artbybriena @adam_amram_.

Public art can be a means of expression on difficult and complex issues. The Public Art Commission will host their retreat on September 15 to discuss their annual work plan including solidifying permanent and temporary art installations in downtown Palo Alto and near City Hall to further the City’s important work to address race and equity.
