(sold) ORIGINAL – Hope is Queen


About the Art and Artist: Hope is Queen by Jessie Milo, who we heard from earlier, was created to speak to hope.  In his words, “Sometimes hope is hard to see, but beyond the chains, there is light” In this piece, the “skin is brown because people of color are overrepresented in the system. The Jordans symbolize youth. The Bloody Achilles symbolize the pain of incarceration. The space is empty around him as we often feel alone as we go through courts. But with Initiate Justice, we know we’re not alone!” Jessie is an Inside Organizer with Initiate Justice.

Dimensions: 18″ length x 14″ width

About the Project

The ART Gallery is a virtual exhibition of a few select pieces from Initiate Justice’s Inside Members. This showcase raises funds Initiate Justice, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, working to end incarceration in California by activating the power of the people most directly affected by incarceration.  Artists were compensated for their contributions.  They will continue to receive a portion of proceeds, and have indicated which projects within Initiate Justice they would like their donations to support.  This project is the care of the Inside Membership Committee.  All committees are open to anyone who would like to contribute their time.  Learn more here.
