About This Piece
The proposed mural “Rise” is an image of a young woman looking to the sky. The symbolism of it can be informed by the words “RISE” above her head, but the feeling of the portrait can invoke something greater. We live in tumultuous times, navigating spaces that are sometimes unsure and hostile, enduring new ways to be divided and ostracized. Images like this are important to planting an idea that can resonate through our communities and evoke change. The mural is an image of power and positivity, an image of a woman, and an image of resilience. By creating something that is general in it’s representation, while still holding elements important to Indigenous representation, “RISE” is accessible visually to everyone.
