The next State of the Arts virtual conversation and live chat — “Taking It To the Street: The Mural Movement of Fort Worth, in partnership with the Kimbell Art Museum — will be Thursday, November 12, at noon.
Artists Leticia Huckaby and Juan Velazquez and TCU Graphic Design Instructor Jan Ballard will discuss their recent protest murals with Jerome Weeks, our senior arts reporter. We’d love for you to join in and share your thoughts.
Sign up and we’ll send you a link to where the conversation will take place, plus a reminder email.
Why we’re talking about murals:
Across Fort Worth and around the world, artists are responding to a year of massive upheaval with mural making. In a time of social distancing, murals have become medium and megaphone for critical conversations, community activism and public art.
From downtown Fort Worth and the Near Southside to the Stockyards and beyond, murals with a message can be found on street corners and alleyways—and sometimes in unexpected places.
We look forward to chatting with you November 12.
