AUSTIN, Texas — Local artists with Capitol View Arts painted a "Black Artists Matter" mural on East 11th Street on Thursday.
“For over nine years, Capitol View Arts has worked with urban artists, particularly in East Austin neighborhoods. In a city where the black population is overlooked, our purpose through this mural is to show continued support and acknowledgment of black artists and their contribution to Austin's legacy and character,” said Clifford Gillard, founder and president of Capitol View Arts.
