Nabil Mousa, an Arab-American artist living in Atlanta, will create a mural on Monday, Jan. 16, to serve as a "social tablet of free expression" to add to a work titled "Judgment Day" that commemorates Sept. 11.
The public is invited to participate in the creation of the art project from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Mattress Factory Lofts, 300 Martin Luther King Jr. SE Atlanta, GA 30312.
From a press release about Monday's event:
The mural will be comprised of nine wooden panels, interlocking to create 10ft x 50ft length wall with a culmination of religious symbols, imagery of the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center, as well as a collage of excerpts from the Qur’an, Bible and Torah.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the public is invited to work creatively along-side of Mousa and post memorabilia, news articles, clothing, shoes, or photographs, and handwritten thoughts expressing emotions surrounding the 9/11 attacks and the Iraq War.
The collaboration will encourage healthy conversation, community oneness and to take steps towards the eradication of racism, discrimination, and social injustice inflicted after the 2001 September 11th attacks.
Mousa is also a strong advocate for same-sex marriage and has created many art pieces devoted to equality including a art show and fundraiser named "The Road to Equality" to benefit the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
