Marsha P. Johnson Tribute - The Moment We Find Peace

Title

Marsha P. Johnson Tribute - The Moment We Find Peace

Coverage

Columbus, Ohio, USA

Description

Two works on panels. The left work is a quote reading "How Many Years Has It Taken People To Realize That We Are All Brothers & Sisters & Human Beings In The Hum Race? - Marsha P. Johnson ~Rest In Power, Queen.~ Aug. 24 1945 - Jul. 6 1992."

The quote is on a blue scalloped circle background with black accents and outlined flowers.

The second work has two seated figures, one male presenting and one female presenting. Both are wearing blue pants and black shirts with a pink flower on their shoulders. Their eyes are closed, and a flower with a black peace sign blooming sits between them. Pink flower petals are falling around them. The male figure holds a growing flower in his right hand.

Block letters at the top read "The Moment We Start To Treat Each Other As Humans, Is The Moment We Find Peace."

The artists of both works have signed the bottom of their panels, but the signatures aren't clear in the photograph.

From the contributor: "My wife and I went downtown to photograph the protest art as we knew that it would not last (for a variety of reasons). The military was still on the streets, a curfew was still in place, and police were still assaulting innocent protestors. Columbus is the capitol of Ohio, so much of this was around the capitol building."
