Dare Coulter is an award-winning artist, muralist, and sculptor.
Her mission for her artwork is primarily to create positive and magical imagery of black people and families. She hopes to have a mural on every continent within the next five years, and a series of sculptures depicting black joy all over the world. Her objective to share positive depictions led her to children's books, and she has illustrated five books to date with one being North Carolina's state selection for the 2020 Library of Congress book fair. Dare is currently Raleigh, North Carolina's first-ever artist in residence, and was commissioned by University of North Carolina Wilmington to create a Black Lives Matter monument. It will be installed in Spring of 2021. Her public art pieces are located all around the Triangle and will be joined by a monumental sculpture at Hayti Heritage Center along with a few more permanent and temporary murals across the state.
