Your #Panel61 by Kaydence Brody

My painting depicts the silhouette of a person looking at a picture in museum 50 or so years from now. The picture they are looking at shows a person of color protesting near the U.S. Capitol building. They are seen holding a sign that says “America: Home of racism, homophobia, transphobic, and overall bigotry”. I decided to put this into my painting because they are huge issues today. We are still fighting for rights. Also, I decided to have someone looking at the picture in a museum 50 years from now because it’s similar to what we’ve seen in textbooks and museums growing up. Over fifty years ago, we were fighting for civil rights. Now, we are still fighting for them. 50 years from now, will another person have to create a painting like this because bigotry is still a relevant problem? Or will a satisfactory change have occured, allowing them to view what’s in the painting, but never having to experience it themselves?
