"Jesus Wept" by Terry Wilson, Indianapolis
Before COVID-19, we occasionally saw a white artist painting a mural, or watched our neighbor Terry Wilson packing his truck to sell his Black art prints in other cities. There's now a gold mine of Black art right in downtown Indianapolis! Since the Black Lives Matter civil unrest, Black artists like Terry Wilson, Matthew Cooper, Gary Gee, Ess McKee, Mechi Shakur, Israel Solomon, and others are being paid to paint murals in their hometown. We pray this moment to become a movement. Black art in downtown Indianapolis is an act of God, and that's our tip of the week.
