Christopher Blay’s May 22 video check in with Letitia and Sedrick Huckaby at Huckaby Studios. The artists and educators talked about studio work during the Great Lockdown of 2020, family, and their students.
“I think that there’s a lot of stuff that, once we get through this, we might want to turn back and grab and recycle into the system to figure out how it could better education.”
The Huckabys will be working with Fort Worth’s Deborah Peoples, who lost a bid to be Mayor of Fort Worth in May 2019, on a street painting project to be completed on the 800 block of Main Street in downtown Fort Worth, between the JFK memorial and the MLK plaque.
The project, Let’s Paint: End Racism Now!, is described as follows:
Join us on Saturday June 27, 2020. At 800 Main St. Fort Worth, Texas. This project will help to lift our voices in support of the fight to end systemic racism in the U.S. We will be painting the street beginning at 7 AM on Saturday the 27th but our artists will draw the design on Friday the 26th.
Volunteers are encouraged to help create the mural by signing up here.
Thank you Chris Blay for doing this. Lovely interview.
My wife and I have 2 works by Letitia and a work by Sedrick so we are quite interested in their worthwhile Ft. Worth project. Don’t know if we can be there on Saturday but I know we’ll see it soon.
