Carrie Mae Weem's new project, Resist Covid/Take 6 aims to raise public awareness about COVID-19 among people of color—Black, Brown, and Native American communities that are disproportionately impacted by the deadly virus—by promoting preventative measures and dispelling harmful falsehoods, while also thanking those who have placed themselves in harm’s way: front-line and essential workers. Resist Covid/Take 6 focuses on raising awareness and encouraging ongoing dialogue about the issue of social equity or the lack thereof, safety, and preventative measures.
In collaboration with Weems, For Freedoms is pleased to announce the new mural in Brooklyn, "We Go On!"
Mural Location: 176 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Between Clinton Ave & Waverly Ave
