ABOUT THE GOLDEN BLOCKS PROJECT
The Golden Blocks Project will partner 4 artists with Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History staff to creatively bring the knowledge housed within the Museum into public spaces in the Laney Walker and Bethlehem areas. The selected artists may utilize visual art, performance, and/or word-craft to create their work. Any interested artist is encouraged to visit the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History to understand its mission and resources,and tofamiliarize themselves with the surrounding area. This project is made possible by a collaboration between the Greater Augusta Arts Council, the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History, the City of Augusta Department of Housing & Community Development, and the advising artists Sala Adenike Allen, Karen Gordon, Baruti Tucker, and Aminah Walton.
