Invisible Intersections Project is a traveling multimedia art exhibit that will illuminate the diverse “everyday people” that make Austin’s African-American Cultural Heritage District a unique and culturally vibrant epicenter of Black Culture. In cooperation with the Austin African American Cultural Heritage District, Austin History Center, The Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce, local artists, and businesses, the Six Square Project will commission artists from various media including photography, painting, film, video, and sculpture to create “portraits” of local citizens that live within the Six Square District.
These multi-media portraits will expand the public’s understanding of the importance of Black Culture in Austin and solidify the history embedded in the stories of the people who live in this district.
This multi-exhibition will take place in 3 historical locations for a duration of 4 weeks. Highlighting 6 of the most influential intersections within the 6 square miles of the African American Cultural Heritage District.
