With Liberty and Justice for Some

With Liberty and Justice for Some

Acrylic on 36x48" canvas


I thought I knew about the "Central Park Five."  How 5 black and brown teenager spent years in prison for a crime they did not commit.  But then I watched "When They See Us" on Netflix and that story came to life.  Watching Oprah's interview with those boys - now MEN - something changed in me.  I want so badly to change things.  I don't know how.  But I know my privilege (my WHITE privilege) has to be utilized.  And the only way I know how to do that is to create.


The price of this piece is obviously higher than my other work.  But not because it took me a month to paint.  It's because 100% of the proceeds will go to the Korey Wise Innocence Project.  If i could sell it for $12 million I would - because I want to be able to give substantially.  But my talent isn't there yet.  So I landed on $1200 - $100 for each year that Korey Wise was wrongfully imprisoned.
