Panel of Live the Legacy II at the Center for Civil and Human Rights
Panel of Live the Legacy II at the Center for Civil and Human RightsLive the Legacy II is a mixed media mural that explores the legacy of Dr. King created by Living Melody Collective artists (Angela Bortone, Jessica Caldas, Angela Davis Johnson, Danielle Deadwyler and Haylee Anne). The piece explores King’s fluid focus in his later years of exploring housing affordablity, homeless and human rights. Live the Legacy II connects Atlanta’s history with Dr. King to the current housing affordability crisis and rampant gentrification as well as the displacement of homeless people from Peachtree Pines.This is a photograph of one of the panels with a view of a separate artwork in the staircase featuring a portrait of MLK Jr.

Detail of Lo Que Hereda No Se Hurta Mural
Detail of Lo Que Hereda No Se Hurta MuralLo Que Hereda No Se Hurta mural was done during Forward Warrior 2018, with Jessica Caldas as the lead artist. about the separations of families at detention centers. It features portraits of three artist-mothers including myself, Jessica and Angela Davis Johnson. They are on top of a wallpaper pattern that morphs into chain link fence.Interwoven throughout is text from the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children which the United States signed but did not ratify, and were the only UN member not to do so.I have spent so much of my life, brush in hand that painting a mural is really a place where I feel so confident. So glad I could spend the day working on a mural about the wretched issue of family separation border crisis. We left a bit of our hearts on that chain link fence.
