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
For 2015’s Monument Art Festival, a dozen international artists painted murals around the South Bronx and East Harlem.
