The final date to "save a spot" on the wall is December 31, 2022.
Completed Wall artwork's will be required the week of January 17th (date to be confirmed).
The theme of the 2023 incarnation of 'The Wall' is “Some Of My Best Friends Are Black”
This is a familiar phrase many of us have heard over the years. At first glance it seems fairly innocuous, yet, It’s a phrase that can elicit a variety of emotional responses. It can certainly be a proclamation of fact in some conversations that yes, some of your best friends are actually Black. It can also have a more dubious connotation. It is a phrase often invoked when someone has been called out on something they’ve expressed that could be perceived as being micro aggression, racially-biased, or even racist. So today we ask what does it mean to you? - Is it a simple statement of fact or racially charged language?
