The African American Portraits Project

The African American Portraits Project features African American leaders who have made lasting contributions to the African American community and the greater Austin community. Every year an honoree is selected by the City of Austin’s African American Resource Advisory Commission and added to the artwork. Austin residents and visitors can read honoree biographies by using our interactive kiosk. 

The African American Portraits Project borders the mosaic artwork, Reflections. Reflections, by Reginald C. Adams, captures important people, places, and events in Austin’s African American community. Reflections was commissioned by the City of Austin Economic Development Department. Read the Reflections portrait guide for more information about the individuals and elements featured in the mural.
