ULM unveils Black Lives Matter public art
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Today, ULM unveiled a Black Lives Matter art project on campus at the Bayou Park across from the library. The 16 letters spell out black lives matter.
Each four by eight painted letter is a different artist’s interpretation of the BLM movement. Each letter was designed and executed by a team of artists and led by a local black artist.
Today, the ULM President talked about its importance.
“Let this art touch your hearts and souls. Remind us of our past so that we do not forget, and invoke in us a desire to be better, to do more and to hope, dream and work towards a future where everyone experiences true equality, inclusiveness and access to opportunity,” Ron Berry said.
