The Black Iris Project
Walter Barnett (Graphic Designer)
The Black Iris Project founded by Jeremy McQueen is a ballet collaborative that creates new, relevant classical and contemporary ballet works that celebrate diversity and Black history. The new ballet WILD follows a young boy’s journey celebrating his 14th birthday while detained at a juvenile detention facility and explores the effects of isolation and imprisonment on childhood development. The illustration I created was used for promotional media such as postcards, posters, social media, etc.
