"My work relates towards the ideas of love and community care through the lens of black solidarity and tenderness. My friends, family, and community members all influence my work and they are the ones who I truly care for. Through the images I make, the goal is to represent them in an honest, compassionate way where they feel honored and supported."
“The love of the family, the love of one person can heal. It heals the scars left by a larger society. A massive, powerful society.” – Maya Angelou
“Love, this time” is an art exploration of how love can liberate, heal, and (re)unite us. 2020 was no different from prior years as the crises of institutional and systemic racism, inequality and injustice continued. However, the COVID-19 pandemic led to restrictions which varied based on who and where you were, and glaring inequities of healthcare and to sudden changes in people’s lifestyles.
One thing that surfaced through this was love as we cared from our friends and ourselves, reconnected with old friends, applauded frontline workers daily and continued outpouring of warmth to those close to us and to complete strangers. Through a series of visual art installations, viewers will accompany artists exploring the various manifestations of love. The community shall carry the individual further along in life and in healing than the individual can carry themselves.
Love is an intentional act of sharing.
“Love, this time” is rooted in community as the place where we can be liberated, healed, united and reunited.
Enjoy FREE installations, and digital interventions that celebrate the legacy of Black creativity and the power of love created by Black artists and activists in Fort Greene & Clinton Hill.

GenZ is an outdoor exhibition centered in the heart of Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn campus designed by AOS Graphic Design student Scott Stegman. The unique scale, 90 inches high and spanning widths up to 1300 inches, challenged Stegman to address the impact and significance of the featured works by Spring 2019 Associate Degree Program graduates in a larger than life arena.
This work was inspired by the movement around the Pratt Brooklyn campus and the generator itself. The design has no beginning or end. It seamlessly flows as the viewer walks around its boarders while mirroring their journey back to them.
