Journey of Hope Exhibit Opening and Book

The Journey of Hope in America Quilts: Inspired by President Barack Obama

I am honored to be a a part of such a beautiful book with such a variety of artists. My work, Si se Puede Dancing at the Revolution is on pages 212 and 213. Its also on the back cover. Its a 60" X 60" work celebrating community activists and organizers including the President.
Emma Goldman's saying," If I cant dance, I dont want to be part of your revolution" is one source of inspiration for this work. My art explores the celebratory dimensions as change agents, communtiy organizers, and activists listing their names on the blocks in the piece.
