Wake Up and VOTE!
Wake Up and Vote speaks to the need for everyone to vote, regardless of political affiliation. It builds on other work I’ve made to encourage greater turnout, and it reflects the importance I place on environmental awareness and healing through the use of recycled materials. I see this coronavirus time as the Earth gasping for breath from the burden humans have placed upon it. I hope people will recognize that the basic act of voting is a way in which each of us can have influence over the decisions made by our government on our behalf. The importance of voting is critical to our future, and to our environment. Images of this piece were taken with families and community organizations in greater Pittsburgh throughout 2020, and will continue into the future.
