"Now having a multitude of experiences within my lifetime through studies, travel and extraordinary mentorship, I have realized as a culture we are still chained to the past indiscretions. With all of this modernity, I am having the same feelings of invisibility and inequalities of my parents' parents. Technological booms, as futuristic as it sounds, have only continued to widen the gap between the haves and have-nots. This print works from the center out. It starts with the cosmos. Some might think of it as heaven. In essence the beauty of our origin. The figure in all of its manifestations emanating from the light. We remained chained to a flawed system. I wanted this print to look visually appealing through color and form. Upon deeper investigation, the eye will travel to the subtle symbols of society badly in need of repair."

Black Art Fund
FUAM's Black Art Fund is a fundraising initiative to support the acquisition of artwork by contemporary Black artists, to address a major gap in the museum’s permanent collection. The museum is accepts both financial contributions to this fund to be used for purchases of artwork as well as donations of museum quality artworks to achieve greater representation and recognition of non-white artists and artworks.
Period and styles of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and architecture dating from the recent past and present. It differs from modern art in that the term 'Contemporary art' does not carry the implication of a non-traditional style, but instead refers only to the time period in which the work was created. 'Modern' and 'Contemporary' are inherently fluid terms. The term 'Contemporary' is sometimes more narrowly used to refer to art from ca. 1960 or 1970 up to the present. To refer to the current time period without reference to style of art, use "contemporary (generic time frame)".
Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
