It's about time I started posting stuff that are happening in real time, instead of pictures I have saved from months ago. Finally back in North Carolina after not being here since my childhood. Good to be back #northcarolina#asheville
Underpass: Four Stepping Stones - Do you see the newspaper here? What are the headlines? Let's climb inside. This mural starts with nature, moves to Native Americans, then a woman at work with the beginnings of manufacturing in the background. Finally, a black man stands with a shovel, and behind him is full-fledged industry, complete with factories and smoking stacks. I'm only speaking about factual news, not political interpretated propaganda. Nature and a mass extinction event, rising waters/climate change are provable facts. Ethnicity is a big news item, whether we talk about a US wall on the Mexican border, Brexit, or the rising numbers of ethnicities moving from their lands across borders for survival. Women's rights, whether nurture, living wages, or healthcare--facts that effect us all. Fact--a good part of the US success and history was built by slaves and other workers, and how they have been/are treated is a fact effecting all. All in this mural. Symbols matter. BTW, which does the artist think is more important, the foreground or background? Are the symbolic halos a clue? Have you noticed that news coverage seems to look at the FG through a filter of the BG? News and history on a wall...
