Augsburg alumni Olivia House ’20 and Silent Fox ’18 were featured in the Pioneer Press story “Billboards across Twin Cities by Augsburg alums promote call for racial justice” on July 1. House and Fox are creators of billboards that memorialize George Floyd and other Black people murdered due to police violence. The billboards will be on display in 30 Twin Cities-area locations through mid-July.
House and Fox worked in partnership with copywriter Jalen Cannon. The project was made possible by a grant from the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation.
The Sun Current also ran a story, “After growing up in Richfield, artist collaborates on racial justice billboards,” which focused on House’s work on the billboard campaign.
