Save the Boards to Memorialize the Movement

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Description

Join us for a conversation with Leesa Kelly and Kenda Zellner-Smith who joined their organizations and are collaborating with MAAHMG to collect, preserve and archive the plywood art murals that were created after the killing of George Floyd. Leesa and Kenda have collected over 500 boards from Twin Cities businesses. An outdoor exhibition of the plywood board murals is being planned for May 2021. Hear about what motivated them to start this project, how they joined forces and why preserving these artworks are important to the Black community. This program will be 60 minutes with a Q&A.
