Can you imagine a vibrant homage to African American heritage in living color enlivening the buildings on 8th Avenue?

All Here Together Productions, in partnership with Unlimited Future, Inc., requests your support for the “Past to Our Future” Public Art Project.

For those who no longer live here, we hope you can give here! We are raising funds building by building, please join our ecosystem of collaborators from local citizens, Global Arts of Miami, Fl., ArtWorks of Cinncinatti, renown artists Ernel Martinez, Anthony Reed II and The Central Appalachian Assembly executing this powerful artistic vision in Huntington.

Public Art humanizes urban environments, giving life to the history, culture and the community on which it’s situated.  We know the 3-Building Mural Project will visually transform 8th Avenue which once was the hub of a thriving Black community.

 

 

The 3-Building Mural Project is a public art collaboration between four organizations located in the Fairfield neighborhood of Huntington, West Virginia.

All Here Together Productions is excited to work on this project with Ursulette Ward, Executive Director of Unlimited Future,Inc, Norman Branch, CEO of Positive People Association and Celes Sheffield, Executive Director of Ebenezer Community Outreach Center, Inc.

Historic Education Workshops will be conducted by Professor Burnis R. Morris and Dr. Delores Johnson.

Mural # 1 Reveal Day – July 29, 2021

The community is buzzing about the impact of Mural # 1

Ernel Martinez was selected as the Muralist to complete the first building mural at Ebenezer Community Outreach Center. On April 15, 2021 the children of Ebenezer Day Care Center and  Ernel began their creative sessions on Zoom. Ernel asked the children to draw responses to “How can you change the world?” and “What do you love about yourself?” Dr. Delores Johnson facilitated a historical design session with the staff and the artist. 

The thoughtful drawings that resulted from this session inspired Ernel’s first draft of mural #1. We had a fabulous public paint day with Ernel and his wife painting the aaaaaaahmazing piece of art on Ebenezer Day Care Center. The children, teachers and Director Celes Sheffield were over the moon when they saw the design.
