Materials: Mixed media on Dura-Lar, chenille stems
Dimensions: 105 x 40 x 24"
Image Statement: The “Demonstrator’s Bags” originated from the clear backpacks protestors were asked to carry at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. The clear bags struck me as a metaphor—a container for the hidden stories of women’s lives.
