Jill Maidhof is Director, Jewish Experiences at the Jewish Community Center and was the project director for the “Wall of Respect,” a portable art piece inspired by the 1967 mural by the same name created by Chicago artists representing the Organization of Black American Culture. It fostered Black pride, revitalized the neighborhood and gave birth to a national community mural movement. Ms. Maidhof said, “We want people to have an experience that will challenge the way they look at art and grow their ability to see beyond the obvious in order to decode symbols and create meaning. We want it to inspire exploration of cultural identity and the impact that we all have on our city.”” See more details at BroadwayWorld.com.
See the “Wall of Respect” at “The Big Reveal” on August 9th at 7 PM in the Main Lobby of The J. The event is FREE to the public. More details and information about the artists, here.
