BPL Roxbury Branch Reopening: Chalk Art

ZNT Arts
Saturday, October 23 | Nubian Square

ZNT Arts is a multifaceted brand that focuses on creating opportunities of joy through art. Zahirah expresses art practices by exploring modalities of painting, illustrations,  jewelry design and more! Centering blackness from a place of beauty, truth and justice that everyone can benefit from as a way to build and connect communities. ZNT's mantra is live and let art: she strives to continue to practice this as a teaching artist and arts education consultant. You can find ZNT Arts in the community face-painting, facilitating a workshop on important causes, or guiding community arts engagement.

We’re pleased to present a handful of interactive, family-friendly activities in partnership with the Boston Public Library as part of their celebration of the newly remodeled and reopened Roxbury Branch, which recently won an ALA/AIA Library Building Award. These activities are made possible with the support of the Wagner Foundation.

Beginning at 11am, join visual artist and art educator Zahirah Nur Truth for a participatory chalk art activity for the whole family. Help make the new Roxbury Branch even more beautiful!
