American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact releasing photo book commemorating the city’s State Street Mural program
The American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact is releasing a high-resolution photo book commemorating the city’s State Street Mural program. The book is free to the public and you can receive some of the first copies off the presses in mid-December if you’re interested.
Here’s the copy that’s on the inside flap of the book:
“Take a walk down Madison’s iconic State Street—from the State Capitol to UW-Madison’s Library Mall—to witness the images and feel the emotion that spurred from dozens of artists after the killing of George Floyd.
This unique publication encompasses striking photographs and the artists’ own words to understand their motivations and appreciate what they hope readers will feel when they see their work.
More than a hundred murals originally commissioned by the City of Madison on storefronts generously provided by downtown business owners are celebrated in this striking collection of art and protest.
Also included are original essays from noteworthy Black scholars and a special poem by Madison’s former poet laureate.
We hope this book encourages you to reflect, to consider and to “Talk About It” when it comes to issues of racial justice.”
Anyone interested in receiving copies can reach out to Adam Schrager, Social Impact Storyteller, American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact at 608-416-0672, firstname.lastname@example.org.
