  • Grant Summary:

    As a Public Art organization, Site Projects values both artwork and education equally, and so to accompany our 2020 Mural Series, we will release an Educational Outreach Program centered around the 19thc black leader William Lanson and the oldest waterfront neighborhoods where he lived and worked. Our outreach program will tell of his legacy in New Haven, as well the barriers he faced, via a pamphlet, a short video, and a seminar (featuring Black History scholars) followed by a Q&A session. The program takes place in March 2021.
