Sculpture of historic March on Washington on display

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Hundreds of rolls of packing tape were used to recreate a sculpture of protesters at the historic March on Washington.

Officials said 500 middle and high school students from Guilford County schools put it together. The sculpture will be on display until Friday, Feb. 14.

The sculpture was put on display at the African American Atelier Gallery in downtown Greensboro.

The gallery hosted an opening reception with the students during Friday’s first Friday event.

“This installation is arts meets history, as well as intergenerational,” said Leshari Clemons, the youth director for the African American Atelier. “So, it showcases everything we offer here at the Cutural Arts Center.”
