Been in my feels after this was dedicated last Wednesday. This was such an incredible project to be a part of. I’m so honored to have partnered with @rhdmorrishome to memorialize these beautiful local Black trans women, celebrate their lives, and the lives of others departed from our trans & gender nonconforming community.
I hope that this mural also speaks to love, and joy, and pride, and the present moment, and the future, and feels celebratory … all at once. Thank you to @alokvmenon for allowing us to draw inspiration from their words. 💓
I’m so proud of this artwork and it is thanks to all of the talented and highly skilled artists that were a part of it: @julielaquer @jaq_masters @katblackthepainter @amarasart @gggreatwhite & the incredible install team: @skovesart @_mcbailey & @divinedownes 🎨 💗 and project manager @movepaige ☺️ I am so grateful, Love to you all 🥰

Eddie and I were next door neighbors growing up. 18 years or so ago, his dad gave me my first mural job. I had no clue what I was doing then, and I never imagined we’d be teaming up in the air all these years later. Thanks for helping me feel as safe as possible up there @scubi_dubie!
*this is not my mural. I was hired to add some paint finishes to the printed wall covering. Install work by isign.
