Episode 5: Black Creatives in Beaver County – Seth Whitted

On episode 5 of The Genesis Collective Podcast, we feature Beaver Falls artist Seth Whitted, recorded as part of TGC’s innovative Black Creatives in Beaver County Interview Series.

Public art highlight: We recommend visiting the Big Rock Park welcome mural in New Brighton, Pennsylvania – a reminder that public art can be functional and decorative.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Seth Whitted (aka WititWednesday) is a creator from Beaver Falls, Pa.  Witit is the producer of most of his work. Writer, engineer, videographer, editor and marketing mind behind the entire movement. Witit is a soldier in the war against conventional ways that keeps us mentally shackled.
