Following the lead of Charlotte, and Raleigh, Winston-Salem now has an anti-racist mural lining their streets.
18 local Winston artists helped contribute to the massive street mural that read, “End Racism Now #BLM” The mural is on Main Street in Winston-Salem and was inspired after a community leader saw Charlotte’s massive mural in our Uptown area. The Arts Council of Winston-Salem even arranged for each primary artist to be paid $250 for their work using a grant program.
I grew up in Winston-Salem and the thing I loved most about growing up there was how much the small city is focused on the arts. Art was a part of life growing up in Winston so it is very cool to see local artists using their talent to portray an important message and to see the city so strongly supporting them.
