The mural’s unveiling: June 20, 5-9 pm, at the Developing Artist Collaboration West Side Creative Market, 19826 Central St., Rehoboth Beach. The event is free to attend with live music, food, drinks, and artists’ work on display.
The project’s goal is to bring awareness of the lost history of West Rehoboth Beach, a gentrified area that was home primarily to families of color in the 1940s. DAC hopes that the surrounding community will embrace the history of West Rehoboth through the mural.
The mural, painted by West Rehoboth’s own Terrance Vann (along with some eager helpers), draws inspiration from the West Rehoboth community, especially residents of color.
West Rehoboth Legacy Mural, funded by a grant from the BIPOC Leaders and Communities Grants Program at the DCF, will be unveiled at the Developing Artist Collaboration (DAC) Juneteenth Event on June 20.
