'Say Their Names' at the Public Theater

Starting this evening, the Public Theater will convert their facade at 425 Lafayette St. into a blank canvas for a new installation.

Via the EVG inbox:
Say Their Names will honor, remember, and include over 2,000 names and accompanying sentences of Black lives murdered at the hands of the police.  
Curated by Garlia Cornelia Jones and designed by Lucy Mackinnon, this installation will cover the entire front of the landmark building and feature work by 10 visual artists from varying mediums ... responding to one single prompt

For centuries, the murders of Black Americans have been overlooked, covered up and disregarded.
We invite you to remember.
We invite you to honor.
We invite you to Say Their Names.

The installation will take place from 5 p.m. to midnight daily through Dec. 5. You can read more about Say Their Names at the Public Theater's website.
