The Greatest City

$350.00

MEDIUM: Colored pencil on Bristol
DIMENSIONS: 7.5″ x 9.5″
DESCRIPTION: Freddie Gray’s death makes institutionalized racism a problem that cannot be tolerated any more. During the Baltimore uprising people came together fighting for justice. In my colored pencil drawing, I try to capture an ambiguous moment. The clasped hands in the middle symbolize the unity of people who care about the city they call home. Every life here deserves respect. No fear should exist even when facing the police, because justice will not be defeated. The child, with a little worry in his eyes, does not fully understand what is happening. Given the complexity of Baltimore as it currently is, “the greatest city in America” is more of a dream than reality. The age-long injustice did not disappear when the protest ended. What the uprising has brought to the city and our next generation remains as a burning question. With hope, Baltimore will keep the faith for as long it needs to, to make “the greatest city in America” an honest statement.
