Art Republic and The Jessie “Lift Every Voice”

Author: Alexandra LaRocque, Downtown Vision Marketing and Events Assistant

“Lift Every Voice” is the newest art project happening in #DTJax. Art Republic has teamed up with The Jessie DuPont Center to make this dream a reality. Local and regional artists have had the opportunity to showcase their art work in a large-scale way through “Lift Every Voice”. The end goal of the project is to put forward representation to under-represented groups throughout the community, featuring culturally appropriate pieces of art. Thus, not only encouraging members of our community throughout their daily life, but also inspiring them in endless ways. While art is a silent language, these pieces have already made lots of noise.

Featured within some of these pieces are people who have accomplished great things here in North Florida and specifically right here in Jacksonville. These pieces have the opportunity to impact generations to come.

Downtown features many more inspirational pieces within this project. We hope that you can make your way over to #DTJax to soak in the beauty of these pieces in person.
