Mending Walls

Hamilton Glass

In May of 2020, the citizens of Richmond, Virginia took to the streets to protest racial inequality, police brutality and the monuments to confederate generals that line on our historical streets and city parks. As a result, African American artist and community activist, Hamilton Glass, chose to create a public art project that brought together artists from different cultural backgrounds to create murals that start conversation and heal the divides between us. That project is called Mending Walls. Host Hamilton Glass sits down with the artist pairings as they discuss their mural vision, their process and the hard conversations that they had throughout their collaboration.
