Sonia Booker, Founder of Studio House Atlanta and Visionary of Queens Mural along with Terracia Brown-Wilkinson, Founder of Our Women in Politics held A Celebration Fit for Queens, a Studio House Atlanta Production.
Queens Mural is an art exhibit inspired by Ms. Booker after her business was damaged by the George Floyd protests that suddenly turned into rioting on May 31st, 2020. Booker’s vision as a mother of a black son was to bring the women voices to the table. This prompted a group of talented women artists to come together to bring Sonia’s vision for her boarded-up business to life. The mural honors women and mothers of those impacted by social injustices brought on by police brutality. Mothers like Mamie Till-Mobley, Lucy McBath, Wanda Cooper – Jones and women like Sandra Bland, Layleen Polanco and Breonna Taylor have all graced the mural as queens with hopes of bringing awareness to the plight of women.

With Atlanta being #1 in the film and entertainment industry it was only fitting that this event be produced out of there, with over 8000 square feet including 7 studios, 2 CYC wall and several green screens.
