Chilean born documentary photographer has photographed murals of Dr. Martin Luther King over the last 30 years. Story here.
This got me thinking of the community art organization I worked for from 1998 to 2003, Open City Productions 2002. We used art to promote social issues, inspire at risk youth, and so on. I found this image which is actually a 5′ x 8′ canvas.A bit dark but it does contain the spirit of those activities. Open City closed in 2003.
I managed a project that had 800 of these canvases in it (which included selections from every province and territory) and , boy, do I ever miss that! Will probably write more on it soon. In the meantime, if there is anyone who would like to start up a project like that, I’m your guy!
