Black Lives Matter Murals: A Conversation
This program takes place via Zoom.
Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, Black Lives Matter protests were organized around the world, including here in Asheville. When a curfew was enacted, businesses like Blue Ridge Public Radio boarded up their street-facing windows and used the opportunity to partner with local artists to voice their support of the movement. Many of these murals have remained around Asheville as visual reminders of this ongoing struggle. Join us for a conversation between David Feingold, general manager and CEO of Blue Ridge Public Radio, and local artist Joseph Pearson, creator of the mural outside BPR, as they discuss their collaboration, Pearson’s choice in subject matter, and his greater body of work.
