Happy MLK Day! In memory of a great man, sharing my painting & our video tribute to his legacy:  https://youtu.be/rLxFcPjERpw . The past few years have seen a lot of racial violence and tensions; what do you think about how far we have or haven’t come since his I Have A Dream speech?

I Have A Dream 2013 painting

Today we honor a man whose voice & vision carried a movement. It seems fitting to post my “I Have a Dream 2013” painting today. Thank you again to everyone who volunteered your voices and faces to this project – look at how beautiful we are when we come together! 🙂 And thank you Dr. King, for your inspiration & sacrifice. RIP.

Check out the full project (including the video!) at www.IHaveADream2013.com.

Women’s History Month is upon us again, and to honor the achievement of woman, NoMAA is curating its annual “Women in the Heights” exhibition, where I have been chosen to debut the REVAMPED & FINAL version of my “I Have a Dream 2013” painting! The video will also be played at the show.

Since the painting’s premiere during MLK’s “I Have A Dream” 50th anniversary last year, I put in another 15+ hours last month (added to the over 100 hours I had already spent) to make sure all 57 people finally have a portrait. This is the first time everyone will get to see the revised and completed piece, and I am so excited to be able to share this with you all at this amazing venue!

The exhibit is FREE to attend and opening night is next Wednesday, March 5, from 6 – 8 pm:

NoMAA Gallery
178 Bennett Avenue, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10040

Please RSVP to nomaaprog@nomaanyc.org and see more info here. There will also be an Artist Talk on March 19 at 6:30 pm where I will be speaking. I hope to see you all there!

After spending 15 additional hours on the “I Have a Dream 2013” painting I created for last year’s 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s legendary speech, all the tiny portraits are finally finished!

I think a gallery show is in the works… Stay tuned!!
