MMM is part exhibition , part historical archival project and in large part a call to action , paralleling the BLM protests around the nation . The title of the exhibition reflects the solemnity in recognizing the on-going movement against the terrorizing and dehumanization of Black lives and the call to end historical erasure through false narratives and monuments . In addition , to a call for art , this is also a call for action . We ’ re also asking artists , activists , and organizations to create new public art and host art events to promote voter registration and voting . For example , the West Windsor Arts Council answered the call for art and action . They joined with the African American Parent Support Group of West Windsor- Plainsboro to create community flags from patches of cloth decorated by community members in honor of Black lives . A brilliant idea to also promote the vote . We can ’ t wait to share it with our growing community .
