Cameron Art Museum has partnered with the arts collective Eighteen Forward to present Black Lives Do Matter at CAM, an eighteen-letter installation displayed on the museum grounds. Black Lives Do Matter at CAM opens to the public on Saturday, January 14 and will stay on view through Sunday, May 28. The public is encouraged to view these eight-foot-high letters as they meander through CAM’s outdoor space.
About Eighteen Forward
The city approved Black Lives Do Matter on August 18, 2020 inspiring the name of our artist group "Eighteen Forward" as a commitment to push for unity, equity and love beyond this installation. What we hope is that people who view this installation will feel inspired to take their own steps toward ending racism. Within two weeks of requesting artist proposals for the installation, dozens of responses were returned and 18 were selected demonstrating vibrant depictions of African American culture in Wilmington. The abundance of artist talent, time, and hard work given during a pandemic is a testament to the commitment of the artists to the expression of care from our city to our neighbors. Please come out to enjoy the art and support the message. Visit EighteenForward.com to learn more.
