Manhattan has a new mural in town that is dedicated to the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The mural was painted by two local artists, Taylor Carr and Jessica Kerr along with community organizing, and Education Chair with the Manhattan Alliance for Peace and Justice (MAPJ).
In a press release, it says the two women painted the mural as a tribute to Ginsburg’s extraordinary contributions to justice and gender equality and a celebration of ordinary American’s coming together to strengthen their community.
A lifelong Kansan, K-State graduate, and partner in ACME Local, Taylor Carr saw an opportunity to make a positive contribution to a town she loves.
The mural is located in the alley across the street from The Chef, which is located in downtown Manhattan, Kansas. The area was commissioned by Incite Manhattan for this specific mural. Follow the link to Incite's website to check out their website to find other murals in the Manhattan area.
I think we all can agree, that there is a lot going on in the world that we don't understand. Looking at this mural I was reminded of how we all must work together, so we can come together!
My hope is that this mural helps to remind us all just as Justice Ginsberg and Justice Scalia did, that we don't have to agree to be friends!
