Nuestro Andar Florece by artist, muralist, arts educator and filmmaker Michelle Angela Ortiz, is located on the wall of Mixteca Organization in Brooklyn, NY. Mixteca is a community-based organization established by “a group of concerned community members to address critical needs in health, education, social and legal issues facing the burgeoning Mexican and Latin American immigrant community in Brooklyn”.

About the mural from the artist’s website-

Nuestro Andar Florece (Our Journey Blooms), celebrates the stories of Mexican immigrant women that have planted their roots in Brooklyn, New York. As part of the Barrio Roots Festival that took place in late October 2016, I led this mural project along with artist Federico Zuvire. The project was supported by Habitajes. They offered a series of creative workshops at Mixteca Organization with women that shared their immigration stories. The women are mothers, students, educators, and some survivors of domestic violence that found a new home in New York. The women decided on the messages that are conveyed in the mural. For three weeks, the artists, workshop participants, local Brooklyn artists, and neighbors participated in the creation of the mural.

Standing in the Gap by Sophia Dawson (@iamwetpaint) is in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn, NYC.  It is part of Murals for the Movement, a public art initiative curated by Liza Quiñonez of Street Theory Gallery, and presented by the New York City Department of Transportation’s Art Program, in partnership with the Downtown Brooklyn + Dumbo Art Fund.

From the artist about the mural (from the information plaque)-

“The concept stems from the necessity to acknowledge the legacy of the generation that came before us that fought for our rights and freedom as we continue to contend for the destiny we deserve. It also speaks to the importance of spiritual warfare and how a battle must be won spiritually before it is won physically. — Sophia Dawson
