Large living color images of African Americans shifts culture
Fairfield neighborhood of Huntington, WV
Started in 2020 and ongoing
Bringing the voices of the community together in vibrant living color, Artists Ernel Martinez and Betsy Casañas designed and executed this collaborative public art project with murals on our first two buildings. Their design inspired by community input pays homage to African American contributions to the culture. All Here Together Productions’ creative process always includes those most impacted as we design and execute any project. It was critical to the success of the project that BIPOC artists were chosen. Both artists are internationally recognized for their experience and talent in bringing community voice to the wall. Each mural is situated on the buildings of three long-standing community-based organizations. Their staff and constituents
imagined local architecture enhanced by images of African American history. An ecosystem of collaborators are bringing this project to life.
