Say Their Names

SAY THEIR NAMES

Installation Dates to be Announced

Visual Installation on The Public’s Facade Dedicated to the Black Lives Lost to Police Brutality and White Violence

Curated by
Garlia Cornelia Jones

The Public Theater will be converting the facade of their historic home at 425 Lafayette into a blank canvas for an artist installation. SAY THEIR NAMES will honor, remember, and include at least 2,100 names and accompanying sentences of Black lives murdered at the hands of the police. Curated by Garlia Cornelia Jones, this installation will cover the entire front of the landmark building and feature work by ten visual artists from varying mediums including From Ferguson to Baltimore by Dáreece Walker and Pietà by Tylonn J. Sawyer, responding to one single prompt: 

For centuries, the murders of Black Americans have been overlooked, covered up and disregarded.

We invite you to remember.
We invite you to honor.
We invite you to Say Their Names.

Creative.

Garlia Cornelia Jones
