art > The Oracles

The Oracles is a collaborative effort between that was designed by Antoine Williams and Donte Hayes then painted by Jill Wells. Commissioned by Iowa City this mural speaks to a moment in time, summer 2020, regarding the conversation around race and violence in response to the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and the resulting uprisings. "The Oracles" is meant to be an unapologetic constant reminder to those in power of the work that must be done and the need for Black joy- highlighting Black people’s humanity and not just our pain.
