CROWN Act Mural Unveiling
Here in Kentucky, the CROWN Act has passed in Louisville and Covington thanks to the work of amazing young advocates like the Real Young Prodigies (who even made a music video). Legislative champion, Rep. Attica Scott, has introduced the CROWN Act the last couple of years and managed to garner bipartisan support for it last year, though it wasn’t able to get floor time. To support this effort, funds were secured from the National Partnership to finance a CROWN Act mural in Lexington. LexArts helped make this happen by securing additional funding, finding an artist, Linda Turley, and a venue, Julietta Market. Li8nda Turley’s mural is the latest addition to the artistic landscape here in Lexington.
