Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center is Looking for Eight Artists
The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center is looking for eight artists to be a part of their 'Call for Artists' initiative to contribute eight paintings to the Heritage Arts Mural Project. The 'mural project' already has murals in place for public viewing in Niagara Falls at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. If you've never been to the Center, it's an experience in local Black History beyond what you could imagine. The most recent addition to the Heritage Arts Mural Project is a story within itself.
According to WGRZ News , local artists, Tyshaun Tyson and Ashley Kay, already involved with the Heritage Arts Mural Project, were asked to create a mural relative to an idea that was
born after organizers of the Heritage Museum's mural project saw 'Black Lives Matter' written in chalk on one of the concrete panels near the other murals.
