Current Digital Mural

No Justice, No Peace

By Oree Originol

Sunday, November 2, 2014 - Wednesday, December 10, 2014

No Justice, No Peace was created by artist Oree Origianol and was inspired by his latest body of work Justice For Our Lives (JFOL). JFOL, is a series of portraits of people from marginalized communities who have lost their lives due state violence and hate crimes.  This digital mural will be the backdrop to our Day of the Dead event Creating Sacred Space; where we will  honor folks who have been sucummed to this injustice.  

Artist Statement:

These images call attention to the ongoing issue of police terrorism and also the culture of violence brought on by the ideals of white supremacy in our society. In recent years we have witnessed an onslaught of police killings of black and brown people; in most cases justice is rarely served. We also deal with violence within our own communities resulting from the fear and lack of understanding of the difference within us, such as race, gender, age, economic status and disability. This project encourages us to engage in conversation with each other to recognize the common ground between our struggles and about how we collectively respond to injustice on a cultural and political level.
