A River Runs Thru Us


This mural extends along the soffit wall through the adult and children`s reading room in the George Washington Carver Branch Library. It celebrates the strong and creative spirit of African Americans as a cultural river that has endured throughout history. Artist McCoo states it was “created to show that we African Americans have always been and will always be connected to our origins creatively.” This work was selected for the Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review, 2005.
