Artists and community members with connections to St. Louis Park are invited to create an artwork for the SLP Human Rights Commission Summer of Action Art-Walk around the themes of Social Justice and Racial Equity: reflection, memorial, healing, and commitment to action. Participants will receive a 24″x24″ piece of plywood, acrylic paints and brushes (or you may use your own weather-proof materials). Artwork will be displayed along the trail at Wolfe Park beginning June 6 at the kickoff event of the HRC Summer of Action, a summer-long series of events to deepen knowledge and build capacity around social justice and racial equity issues.
Up to 30 participants will be selected to participate—participants who identify as Black, Indigenous, or people of color will be given priority. We welcome artwork from people of all ages as well as families working together, and recognize that understanding and expression of the project themes will vary based on age and lived experience. Sign ups will close on May 7.
