Add your voice to the Downtown Greenway’s newest public art-Freedom Cornerstone

January 5 - January 31

The Downtown Greenway seeks community input for Greensboro’s newest public artwork, the Freedom Cornerstone, to be located in the southeast corner of the Downtown Greenway’s four-mile loop – at the northeast corner of the intersection of Murrow Blvd and East Gate City Boulevard, Greensboro, NC 27401. This highly visible location was created with the realignment of the intersection in coordination with Downtown Greenway construction.

The Freedom Cornerstone will celebrate the concept of Freedom, and will recognize the role that the City played in the non-violent protests of the pivotal 1960 Greensboro lunch-counter sit-ins that served as a catalyst to the larger movement.

Community members are asked to let us know “What Does Freedom Feel Like to You?” Send your thoughts in the form of a word, phrase, image, or sound that evokes the idea of Freedom to you. Responses can be communicated in these ways and will be shared with artist, Radcliffe Bailey who is creating the work:
