Nominate Your S/Heroes

BY: JXTA

We need your help! We’re preparing a blank wall that will be filled by a brand new mural created by Bronx-based artists Tats Cru to serve as a the backdrop to our forth-coming skate-able art plaza (more on that here). To create the mural design, we need input from community members like you: who are your s/heroes?

Some of our s/heroes include (pictured above) LGBTQ activist CeCe McDonald, MN Attorney General Keith Ellison, lawyer/activist/speaker Nekima Levy-Pounds; plus, Mahmoud el kati, Nellie Stone Johnson, Sharon Sayles Belton, Shawntera Hardy, and Spike Moss. Now, we need you to nominate your s/heroes so we can make this a robust, diverse, and vibrant work of public art available to all who visit the plaza.

Ways to nominate your S/HEROES:

As this is a community mural, we ask that nominations be of public or semi-public figures. We will accept nominations until April 14, 2019.

Help us fill this blank wall!
