MonumentArt: Faith47

MonumentArt is a new public art project that has wrapped up this past weekend in the diverse neighborhoods of Harlem and The Bronx, NYC, which focuses on the issues of immigration. Faith47 was one of the many participating artists who painted this beautiful mural entitled "Estamos todos los que cabemos." In the words of the artist the mural "speaks of the migratory patterns of birds, observing that nature ignores human borders on a map. We forget that the dividing lines specifying countries, were merely drawn by politically hungry men [when] in reality the earth is open. There are no countries, no borders, it belongs to no one. We are transient visitors and should travel as we please." For more info and images of this new addition to the streets of Harlem head on over to her site here.
