ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — You may know Shawn Dunwoody from his vibrant mural displays throughout the city of Rochester. 

He recently partnered with East High School to create The Legacy Project: The Eyes of Our Ancestors, which features mural depictions of historical figures like Nelson Mandala, Harriet Tubman, and Martin Luther King Jr. throughout the high school’s courtyard. 


He’s also working on a Rochester-themed comic book called League of Legends, which showcases some of Rochester’s legends like Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, and George Eastman as superheroes. 

Dunwoody sat down with Lynette Adams to catch up on his recent work.
