Caja De Memoria Viva II

Charcoal on wood, audio recording, witch hazel aroma, original photographs, antique objects

Caja de la Memoria Viva II is a multimedia exhibit that represents the life of Doña Constancia Colon-Clemente a Black Puerto Rican who migrated to the United States in the 1940s. Upon reflection, it is yet another example of the racial separation and rejection within our own people. Her story is just one of many that could be told.

On tour with the Outwin Boochever 2016 "American Portraiture Today" National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian Museum. I won the People's Choice award at the National Portrait Gallery with the largest number of votes in the exhibitions history (over 40K votes), as well as having the most votes at the Tacoma Art Museum.
