Donate to help support myself, @mataruda, @jetsonorama and Thea Gahr paint this mural in the center of Phoenix, AZ here: bit.ly/nn15mural (we are at $500 / out of our goal of $2900) Please share and repost! ✨
This mural honors the work done by Colíbri Center for the Human Rights which assists families in their search for missing loved ones along the U.S. Mexico border and brings closure to those suffering a devastating loss. ✨

Colíbri (the Spanish word for hummingbird), are an indigenous symbol for safe passing. They soar as messengers between life and death, and their hundreds of species have been found migrating across the U.S./Mexico border for thousands of years similarly to how thousands of humans have migrated. We paint hummingbirds to honor the undefeatable spirits of the migrants who lost their lives during the journey across the Sonoran Desert.

Introducing: “Visions From The Inside,” a collaborative effort between 15 visual artists and detained migrants at Karnes Detention Center in Texas.

Excerpt from letter: “We need the help of all of you because we feel depressed and forgotten in this place.”

"I chose images of mothers holding children because I remember how it felt to be placed in I.C.E detention. All I wanted was the comfort of my mother and I think that the women are incredibly brave, strong and noble in those situations. [Even in detention] they are still fighting for the safety and well being of their children.” -Fidencio Martinez (@artistfidencio)

@culturestrike is currently in the final stages of completing a letter illustration project titled “Visions From The Inside.” The project is a collaborative effort between immigrant women detainees living inside of the for-profit Karnes Detention Center, and 15 artists from across the country. We can attest that every single image is gorgeous and potent in a very real and heart-wrenching type way. We will be unveiling one piece per weekday starting on July 27th here via our IG feed and in our freshly-revamped website: culturestrike.org.

In the meantime, here’s a progress shot of Rommy Torico’s (@rommyyy123) contribution. Rommy writes, “These women are not victims. They are luchadoras/fighters, and we must remember that. They fight every day to protect their children and to survive the darkness.”

“Colíbri” 2015// 1026 Grand Ave // Phoenix, AZ // A mural that honors the work of @colibricenter for the human rights - an organization that reunites the bodies of missing migrants with their families, and helps them through the process of grieving. Colibri also helps end migrant death along the U.S. Mexico border and supports the immigrant rights movement. This mural was a massive 100 foot community effort of nearly all artists of color including: @mataruda @justseeds artists: @jessxchen @jetsonorama Thea Gahr, Phoenix artists: @lucinda_yrene @lalocota @theallelectrickitchen and Jules Badoni. It was produced by Netroots Nation, @dbirdy and the creators of 2013 Sundance film “Who Is Dayani Cristal?” @lksriv and @marcsilver . Huge thanks to @monimatamochacha. Remember the millions of migrants who lost their lives crossing the Sonoran Desert. Empower the mothers who often carry the weight of grief. Know that brave women as well as men attempt the journey across the border everyday. In time, the wheatpaste skeleton of the colibrí will peel off and reveal a mother and child. Photo by Jess X.
