Banneker-Douglass Museum donates 12 Murals to Organizations throughout Maryland!
ANNAPOLIS, MD – “The Black Vote Mural Project”, BDM’s 2020 exhibition, explored the intersection of public art, Black voices, and civil rights with seventeen murals and an installation that transformed the interior galleries of the museum. Painted by regional artists, these murals interpreted the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) 2020 theme: African Americans and the Vote.
We are happy to announce that BDM expanded the impact of “The Black Vote Mural Project” beyond the museum walls and across the State of Maryland by donating twelve of the murals to Maryland organizations that prioritize Black art and history as agents for social change!
