"Wells is the talent behind many highly visible murals and art projects in Iowa and elsewhere. Young Black children in Des Moines will grow up seeing themselves reflected in the murals’ themes. Wells’ soaring murals across the state have the power to revolutionize how we see ourselves and maybe how others see us as well."
