David Wilson Hargraves Murals ThumbFive exterior murals, each approximately 7 x 14 feet, are mounted at the entrances to the Hargraves Community Center, the adjoining AD Clark Pool, and the attached Northside Gymnasium Basketball Court.  Each panel presents a history of the Center's community and political leaders, its central role in the Northside neighborhood, and its significance as the first social and recreational facility for African-Americans in Chapel Hill.  The works formally recognize the individuals and activities of the Center since its inception.  The murals' panels are digitally enlarged versions of original 18 x 24 inch paintings that hang inside the center.  Learn more about the following murals:
