Between 1865 to 1950, thousands of African Americans were victims of mob violence and lynching across the United States” - EJI Lynching in America
Artworks Foundry is proud to have been a part in the “Arise” Community Remembrance Project with the @MemPeaceJustice in Montgomery, Alabama. The monument features six life size figures that were sculpted by artist @bc_sculptor. Each figure is a direct descendant of both documented or undocumented lynching.
We have been developing this project with Branly Cadet and the @eji_org since the beginning of 2021. Each of the figures took many months to complete through the lost wax casting method. Once each figure was casted in bronze, our talented metal finisher Steen Kjorlie spent countless hours welding each figure together!
The monument can be found at the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama. We hope that you can appreciate this monument and its moment in history as much as we have.
