Racial Injustice Artwork By Solve Featured At Weisman Art Museum
“Just Yesterday” Highlights Inequalities In Our Recent Past
Weisman Art Museum, on the University of Minnesota campus, recently installed an outdoor public art exhibit calling attention to racial inequality in a fresh, provocative way. Titled Just Yesterday, the series uses iconic pop culture references to put systemic injustices from our recent past into context—injustices that continue to oppress communities of color to this day. The eye-catching, vibrant layouts and gut-punch-style messaging are meant to create reflection and conversation. Launched May 17, 2021, the 60-foot wraparound mural covers the Weisman’s exterior façade. Just Yesterday is part of Solve’s ongoing commitment to address diversity and inequality. The idea was developed by agency employees and interns (led by Mike Gaines and Maggie Williams) last summer in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. Read more about the project here.
