Statement from the Artist, Julia Martinez
This piece focuses on the true meaning of deep democracy- pouring your whole
self and emotions into your beliefs and actions. This allows us to
create powerful change in the world around us.
Different emotions go into this process that are often times conflicting.
Happiness, sadness, and anger are shown in the faces of the marigold
flowers, which represent the fragility of life. This piece honors those
who have dedicated their lives to creating change in our communities.
