Public Art

Black Excellence in Zone 15

ArtWorks was proud to partner with The Heights Movement, the village of Lincoln Heights, and ArtsWave on Black Excellence in Zone 15. Lincoln Heights is the first self-governing African American community above the Mason-Dixon Line and has a rich history of Olympians, politicians, scholars, and artists. The Heights Movement, a collective of Lincoln Heights residents who have roots in the historic Black neighborhood and who are leading its revitalization, came to ArtWorks for assistance in bringing their vision for the first piece of public art in the village to life.

The 80-foot mural in Serenity Park was designed and executed by artist and Apprentice alumna Daryl Myntia Daniels, who led a team of five ArtWorks Youth Apprentices. The mural presents a visual historical timeline of Lincoln Heights and features some of its influential residents. The bright design adds beauty and pride, by celebrating community’s leadership and legacy, with the goal of inspiring the future.
