From the Artist

I am particularly excited by the collaborative possibilities with Artist Trust and the Frye Art Museum in our shared commitment to amplifying transformative, socially-engaged images and stories. It is my hope that in this intense time of cultural change, we will learn from the contributions of the marginalized and prefigure new futures.
