In the now
Since 2016 I have been making Glass Cathedrals that explicitly deal with politics and political activism. Each Glass Cathedral was created and exhibited separately (unlike in other collections) but I have brought them together here to be viewed in one place.
2018/2019 Women's March
In 2018 and 2019 I made two more Glass Cathedrals of the Women's March, replicating that year's signs in miniature.
Paying attention to the changing signs was a great indicator of how the progressive movement (as exemplified by the Women's March) was evolving - ideologically, structurally and in terms of which issues were coming to the fore. At all successive San Francisco marches, I was impressed by the inclusivity of the platform but also the fierce urgency for historically silenced people to be heard, for the oppressed and under-served to advocate with their own voice.
2018: We're Baaaaaaaack!
2019: Trust Black Women
