The Mural Panel Project, 2019

The Mural Panel Project is an interactive mural that seeks to engage different communities in conversations around social inequality on Davidson College’s campus and stems from a personal interest in public art and social change. This reclamation project focuses on topics, identified by the student body, that are problematic to an inclusive environment. Makayla Binter ’20
