“Love and Protect” murals are a condemnation of violence and a commitment to uplift, nourish, fortify and pay homage to our communities so that when we rise, we rise up together. On April 10th-11th, 2021, local Asian and Black Bay Area visual artists and community members came together to produce a series of mobile public art murals in Oakland Chinatown for communities impacted by Asian hate crimes. This exhibit reflects and resonates calls for unity among global communities historically impacted by systems of oppression. Artists Cece Carpio and Robert Trujillo of Trust Your Struggle Collective, and Tommy Wong of Civic Design Studio, brought together local artists who are deeply rooted in the fight for racial and environmental justice. Damien McDuffie and the Black Terminus AR team then collaborated to turn the murals into an amazing augmented reality experience.
