This Is What Community Looks Like
The Charlottesville Mural Project is proud to offer logistical support for “This is What Community Looks Like!” an Inside Out Project sponsored by Charlottesville’s Unity Days. Debuted August 2019 the 120 black and white wheat pasted portraits stretched down Second Street Southwest, directly off the Downtown Mall. The photos featured the faces of activists, leaders and community organizers from all walks of life and ages ranging from 9 to 94. “This year, we want to tell a different story,” said organizer Lisa Draine, “One that shows what it looks like when a community fights back against the destructive forces of white supremacy, hatred and systemic racism.” Portraits were taken by Ézé Amos and Kristen Finn.
