Had a great time with the @loweartmuseum and @cityofcoralgables visiting the new sculptures including “Josephine & Kazumi (real red)” named in honor of @d4.ph ‘s great-grandparents ♥️ 🇺🇸🇯🇵

So proud of my mom with her amazing installations @nationalhotelmiami @universityofthearts @prizmartfair !! Also congrats @gordonparksfoundation for beautiful installation as well!

It is so amazing to see this project expand! @forfreedoms is a part of @freepublicart @spinelloprojects opening manana. @emilyshur @wyattgallery @ericgottesman !

Earlier this year we named this sculpture “Harriet & Annie (Capri)” 2018 in honor of @wilsyl @helenboo0 their grandmothers. Both of these amazing women passed away passed away 2 weeks ago 2 days from one another. If it weren’t for the choices of two strong women who never met, neither Will nor Helen, nor this sculpture would exist. Give it up for the ancestors. We are all connected. Give thanks.

Pretty in pink! 💞

“The truth is I welcome you!” I’m so excited to be debuting several new benches and in installation commissioned by @cityofcoralgables !

Repost from @michelleangelaortiz "Delmy was detained with her son for 654 days at the Berks family prison. She shared in her interview that to survive, she had to declare victory and freedom every single day. She sings a song that the 14 mothers that were detained with her sang to give each other strength. These billboards are 2 of 8 large scale installations throughout Harrisburg highlighted through my "Familias Separadas" project. The project amplifies the stories of families affected by detention and deportation in Pennsylvania. These billboards are also featured in the @forfreedoms nationwide initiative. Swipe to hear Delmy's story. Go to www.michelleangela.com/familias-separadas to see more images and a map of all the installations."
