Black Love Mural Festival, Denver, CO, June 2020

There is a curated art display going up at Civic Center Park called Black Love Mural Festival. It runs through June 30, 2020. I took photos on Saturday afternoon, June 13, 2020, of the creation in progress as well as other activities going on at the time.

The display was created, organized and curated by Robert Gray, Rob The Art Museum, and Annie Phillips of ILR Art. It is helping fund around 20 black artists to paint murals on plywood panels put around statues and other objects in Civic Center Park. ​

Information about the event from the organizers can be found on Instagram at: @blacklovemuralfestival ​

There is a GoFundMe page if you wish to contribute to paying the artists. It can found at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/black-love-mural-festival ​
