I created these titles to highlight the oppressive issues occurring in Florida and other non-democratic states.
Some of the titles, of course, are a play on real books.
“Their Souls Live On”
LA Lee YMCA / Mizell Community Center
1409 NW 6th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311
The public wall mural was created by families honoring their family members who have passed by painting words and images on shoes.
Their work now hangs inside the new YMCA built on the historic land of Provident Hospital,
the first black hospital in Broward County.
Thank you Constance Ivana, co-leader of project, and Sharon Major-Hughes, YMCA Director of Family Services.
Donors of the project: Broward County Cultural Division, Broward Arts Calendar, Derivan Matisse, Italian Art Store, Etiko Fairtrade Shoes,
American Fishing Wire, Blick Art Materials, and Jerry’s Artarama Retail Stores.

OvaVenger – Superhero for Reproductive Justice! (13″w x 23″l x 5″d) – $1200 plus tax
In collaboration with ceramic artist Ellen Cohen-Berman, Vicki Rosenthal designed and painted this beautiful ceramic piece.
The sides of OvaVenger’s armor are quotes from signs of the masses who took to the streets in opposition to the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs Wade. The power of this piece comes from the many voices. (Zoom in to view their words.)
“Lovelin” – Current Fundraiser
“Lovelin” focuses on a bisexual woman currently seeking asylum in the US after fleeing her country in Africa. She and her girlfriend were caught being together in a nightclub; her girlfriend was killed shielding her from the attackers. This painting tells her story through her words and images.
