PARJE Brings Communities Together to Achieve Rachial Justice Through Art

This first work commissioned by PARJE is a two-paneled painting (a diptych) meant to be seen together. The work reflects on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. This bridge played a pivotal part in our country’s Civil and Voting Rights history.


Nancy Gladwell is working on the left side of diptych, showing the Edmund Pettus Bridge as it was on Bloody Sunday in 1965, Jasmine or Jas Oyola- Blumenthal is working on the right side of the diptych, a more impressionistic painting of how we hope the bridge will look sometime in the future when we’re all working together to overcome systemic racism.
