Artist Nina Chanel Abney Dedicates New Arkansas Mural to the Black Community

Part of a program titled ARkanvas, which showcases the work of BIPOC creatives.

Female-led global curator group Justkids and Arkansas-based organization OZ Art‘s program, ARkanvas, was created to highlight the work of BIPOC creatives in the United States. The latest individual to join the initiative is Chicago-based artist Nina Chanel Abney.

Abney unveiled a colorful mural in Arkansas earlier this week titled Mull It Over. “My starting point for the mural was thinking about the things that have been going on in the last year, and historically, and about how it can’t be unity unless everyone is respected equally,” she said in a statement. The piece features four different sections and words that read: “STOP – DON’T KILL – LOVE – BLACK.” According to Juxtapoz, Abney combined “representation and abstraction with a message of love and human embrace in a historical context.”

Take a detailed look at the Mull It Over mural by Nina Chanel Abney above. Head over to OZ Art’s website for more information about the ARkanvas program.
