May 22, 2021 at Phelps Park, 701 E 39th St, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
This is a free outdoor public art exhibit presented by Save the Boards, Memorialize the Movement and the Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery (MAAHMG). The exhibit features the plywood art murals that were created during the 2020 uprising sparked by the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. There will also be local artists doing live painting, speakers, performers and resource providers. This is a community event to remember and reflect on the emotions during the uprising through these murals that express our collective voices fighting for racial justice. The event is funded in part by grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) and the Minnesota Vikings.
