AADL Black Lives Matter: Mural Dedication
Friday July 23, 2021: 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Downtown Library: Library Lane
Join the Ann Arbor District Library for the dedication of the Black Lives Matter Mural newly installed on Library Lane.
This mural showcases the work of eight Black artists who show what the phrase Black Lives Matter means to them. This project was commissioned by the Ann Arbor District Library in the summer of 2020 as part of its Call for Artists.
The community-based project is the culmination of nearly a year of work between AADL staff, the local arts community, and a community review panel featuring Jamall Bufford, Marianetta Porter, and Rochelle Riley. Artistic Coordinator Avery Williamson helped lead the project and contributed art for one of the eight panels, which includes work from seven other artists showing what the phrase Black Lives Matter means to them: T'onna Clemons, Quadre Curry, Demario Dotson, John Rodriguez, Rachel Elise Thomas, Jaleesa Rosario Turner, and Curtis Wallace.

This event includes light refreshments and a musical performance by the Marcus Elliot Trio.
