‘Black Lives Do Matter’ art on display at park in downtown Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A big new art installation is up in downtown Wilmington.

The “Black Lives Do Matter” art piece was put on display in Jervay Park this weekend.

The city passed the “End Racism Now” art installation last month and enlisted the help of several artists from around the area.

You can see the mural from 3rd Street as well as from Jervay Park.

It will remain in place for one year.
