Greenville-based marketing company EP+Co has collaborated with the Peace Center to present a poster series entitled “Allied in Art.” The posters, which went on display Aug. 24, feature messages and images of Black voices from the arts.
“Right now, it seems like the only headlines that get attention are about what pushes us apart,” said EP+Co president and chief creative officer Con Williamson. “But what about the things that bind us? We at EP+Co are big believers that art has a way of bringing people together and the ability to heal rifts, produce real dialogue and create true, genuine discourse. That skill seems to have gotten lost somewhere along the way. We have this incredibly diverse and unique culture here in the Upstate, so we wanted to create something that celebrates the art and creativity around us in all its forms. We’re joining forces with the Peace Center to not just showcase art, but to use art to bring our amazing city together and maybe even help us all move forward as one.”
EP+Co plans to extend the “Allied in Art” messaging throughout the community for the rest of 2020. The company will be featuring the posters in a variety of different mediums, both in-person and online, and will update the public once details are available.
