Include Us In The Dream; It Was Built On Our Backs
Original SOLD, giclee print available and will arrive in a custom shadow box.
Include Us In The Dream Too is a cry for liberty and equal rights for Black America. We exist in a nation that is divisive versus inclusive. This piece reflects back, a gentle reminder that America was "built on the back of slaves" and now free as a people, should be included in the proverbial American Dream.
The mixed media piece includes raw cotton, a gift from a friend collected while visiting Southern Georgia. In a combination of several recycled elements and hand cut paper brought together, it is finished with red acrylic paint, signifying the blood, sweat and tears of Black America. The original, 32"x36" was sold during Art Bsel, in Miami, in 2019. This piece is available as an archival print and will arrive framed in a 9"x9" shadowbox when ordered.
