Description

Two giant silos are covered with the images of a young man and woman the artist met during his stay in Jacksonville.

While in the city, the artist searched for subjects, and a representation of the "real soul of the city." On the left is Connell, a passionate activist and member of the Deaf speaking community, and on the right is Sara, a Palestinian American who spoke passionately about her community in downtown Jacksonville.

The artist says the piece is “a signal of solidarity. Unity between all classes whether you are white, black, Hispanic, gay, straight, transgender—I believe this represents an ongoing struggle in the fight for justice.”

This piece was commissioned by the annual arts festival ArtRepublic.

Location

On the south side of the grain silos, at 2041 East Adams Street
