The Collection:

Lauren is an Afrofuturist themed art-piece that focuses on the Black Woman and Her power to disrupt the status quo, bring about a future that is more inclusive versus divisive. To serve this concept and theme, I chose to incorporate portraits of Lauren Tate Baeza into my original collage, the first and only Black Woman in 116 years to hold a Curatorial role at The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA. This is a celebration of this Door Opener, Lauren, that is sure to embolden, uplift, and empower others to rise after her!
