Greenwood Art Project
“Though these works focus on the children of Greenwood that survived the massacre, the faces holding resilience through the trauma experienced are universal. Unfortunately, we see their faces in children present day surviving the loss of their parents due to unchecked police brutality and continued racism that remains a threat to our right of freedom and a quality life.” N. Masani Landfair
“The Greenwood Art Project is an initiative of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre Centennial Commission. Its purpose is to add a cultural component to the many activities and programs the Centennial Commission will host during the centennial year.
The goal of the Greenwood Art Project is to be a catalyst for uniting the city of Tulsa by working with artists, residents, leaders, organizations, and businesses to elevate awareness of Greenwood’s history, focusing on the 1921 Tulsa Massacre and the once thriving Black Wall Street.
The Greenwood Art Project strives to create art that activates the community towards healing from our history, rebuilding, and re-cultivating Greenwood Avenue in the most beautiful and authentic way. “

” #AmericanPortraitPBS is excited to present three groundbreaking public art projects. Inspired by stories shared on our site, and the unique individual and community narratives of the artists, each piece offers new perspectives on the journeys that brought us here and the paths that lie before us.
Three renowned artists bring their unique expressions to New York, Dallas, and Tulsa.
@swoonhq‘s “The House our Families Built” — a roving, mobile sculpture — asks us to consider the legacies we carry forward and the legacies we make a conscious choice to leave behind. Find it at @brooklynbridgeparkthis Saturday and Sunday! @thirteenwnet
Rick Lowe’s (@projectrowhouses) “G.A.P VAN,” part of the @greenwood.art.project, is a traveling van and multi-use, collaborative mobile art exhibition and workshop space that invites residents of Tulsa to share personal narratives through artmaking and education, featuring posters submitted by local artists and participants in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Find the van in Tulsa from Jan. 18 – May 15. @oetaok
@c.ramirez2323‘s “Altar to a Dream” draws from his personal and family history, expressing the experience of migrant populations as a central focus. Using his signature bright colors, murals, readymade objects, and neon, he creates an homage and space of worship out of the artifacts common to this journey. Find it at 1601 Main Street, Dallas, TX from Jan. 29 – Feb. 14 @keratx
