New Work: Localore

Identity for one of 15 Localore: Finding America projects. The point of departure is conversations with locals leading to monuments of forgotten sites and people in the city of Richmond. To represent this, I used two human profiles creating a monument to a citizen. The lettering is custom. This project is titled, “UnMonumental” and is being executed by independent producer, Kelley Libby in Richmond, VA.

About Localore
“The program, run by AIR, partners independent producers with public media stations and provides them with funding through July to cover underserved communities.”

About UnMonumental
“Richmond’s African Burial Ground rests under I-95 and at the center of debate about where to place a new stadium. It’s the first stop for a public radio and art enterprise that introduces us to many of Richmond’s hidden or forgotten sites and the people who cross these spaces.”
