No-one is too small to make a difference MICRO
This Glass Cathedral artbox was inspired by first The Women's March 2017, and the people who've been moved to action to protect our rights, our diversity and our planet. I made one protester every day for Trump's first 100 day culminating on the Climate March on 29 April 2017.
The original artwork was raffled, raising over $3000 for Earthjustice.
I have made a new box each subsequent year, the signs reflecting the new priorities and evolution of the movement .
I was at San Francisco airport in January 2017 protesting the pending Muslim Ban.
People were chanting call and response. I’m not really the calling type (my kids would disagree) but I found myself calling: “Show me what America looks like!” because that question was really burning in me. The crowd answered my call: “This is what America looks like”. No doubt there is not just one America, but there is this America, this version of humanity, and it’s the inspiration for this project.
