Black Lives Matter Bird

Washington DC, USA

Submitted by: Valerie Gwinner

Support for Black Lives Matter can been seen all across DC in more and less formal contexts. Here, the message is carried by a beautiful, colorful bird, painted on a plywood piece that covers a shuttered theater on the city’s 14th Street. BLM, business closures due to Covid, the need and vulnerability of the arts in this context, and the ever present image of plywood-covered windows – these are the emblems of our current times. The bird here brings a spot of light and color, albeit a temporary one.
