Vela Creative The Reading Room Wall Mural Design

 
 
The Reading Room
The ultimate goal of our client was to make Black dignity visible through history, empowerment, access to a wide variety of reading materials, and shared cultural and artistic programming. Owned by a nonprofit whose goal is to have a positive impact in a multi-racial society – the project was funded entirely via donations, and it is located on the ground floor of a new affordable housing building in St. Paul. Communicating a message of inclusivity and perseverance, and anchored by the history of the Pullman Porters, the space incubates a sense of belonging and creates a connection between local labor history and modern civil rights issues.
