On Becoming a Black Art Conservator
George Floyd Global Memorial's Cultural Heritage Preservation Internship program is pleased to present a rare opportunity to hear stories, reflections and discussion of a distinguished panel of Black Art Conservators.
This event is part of our ongoing Art + Justice series, a community-enrichment program which brings together artists from the George Floyd Square community and provides them with a platform to tell their stories.
Everything is Somebody's Offering
The offerings in this rememory experience are spaced out so we can remember that each offering was brought to the memorial as a single form of protest. Each offering carries its own energy, protest story, and power. This exhibit is a small selection from and an extension of the memorial you witness outdoors at George Floyd Square (E 38th Street & Chicago Ave S.). Allow yourself to feel. Allow yourself to remember. Allow yourself to be moved to continue the work of racial justice. Join us for the "Everything is Somebody's Offering" Exhibit!

The George Floyd Global Memorial and the community at George Floyd Square invited individuals and faith communities throughout the world to join in a virtual interfaith Day of Prayer for Justice for George Floyd and Black Liberation beginning March 8th, 2021.
This is an ongoing invitation for supporters around the world to offer prayers for Justice for George Floyd and for Black Liberation, in their own ways and through their own faith traditions, as an act of love and solidarity online. Information for how to participate virtually will be updated periodically. Check back often for updates.
In honor of the Global Day of Prayer for Justice for George Floyd and Black Liberation, we invite you into meditation for 8:46 for a moment of silence. The imagery in this video is the streetscape at the intersection of 38th Street E and Chicago Avenue S in Minneapolis, MN, a most sacred space.
