The Black Love Mural Festival in Denver’s Civic Center Park was originally slotted to end on June 30 but has been extended to July 7. The festival is a collaboration between Rob the Art Museum, the City of Denver and IRL art. Of the thirty Colorado-based artists of color that participated, twenty were paid for their work through a GoFundMe page. The remaining funds were used to finance community art classes. Ms. Mayhem reporters Polina Saran and Madison Lauterbach spoke with several artists who shared the inspiration behind their pieces and the project manager from Rob the Art Museum.
