Description

The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) Public Art Services celebrates the completion of the Freedom Park Pathway Public Art Project – Journey to Freedom: Women of the Civil Rights Movement by Lynn Marshall Linnemeier with photographs by Dr. Doris A. Derby, Shelia Turner and Susan Ross. The piece commemorates the contribution of women to the Civil Rights Movement past and present. The project honors the mothers, sisters and daughters of the movement by visually bridging the gap between generations and focusing on the continued commitment to social justice. The piece uses wall murals and figurative silhouettes to honor both women in Atlanta, Georgia and the greater region of the south through a variety of photographs and symbolic motifs, including quilt styled designs.
