Striking, isn’t it? Depictions of owls are not uncommon in Leeds, because owls appear on the city’s coat of arms, but I have never seen one like this. The banner is highlighting a relatively new exhibition at the Leeds City Museum entitled “My Leeds My Culture“. To quote from Leeds City Councils website:
“Curated by a local community group ‘Angel of Youths’, the ‘My Leeds My Culture’ display at Leeds City Museum, will launch on 18 October 2014 and run until October 2015 as part of Black History Month celebrations. The display highlights the African Diaspora contribution to Leeds culture through; music, sport, arts, history, faith and fashion“.
Why not pop in and have a look.
