About the Series
Creating new fragments for my African American Marbleization-An Act of Civil Disobedience Public Guerrilla Sculpture Series. It’s a Guerrilla sculpture series focused on my response to oppression and racism. I sculpt, mold, and cast the pieces using marble dust. Then I install them Guerrilla style outside.

Why fragments?
In some museums I see fragments of pieces from classical sculpture. I can even go online and buy one crafted of plaster from Italy for $600. As a child I would see many sculptures, mostly with features that did not resemble mine. Sometimes I would see features so over exaggerated I would think who were they suppose to resemble? Why did the museum have these? Why are there rooms filled with Greek sculptures and only 1 or 2 of people of Color
