Mountaintop

Foote Homes, Memphis, 2016

This recent public art piece was created in conjunction with a film about Lil Buck, called “Me and the Light”. The day before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered in Memphis he gave his final speech given the name “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”. My piece connects this speech with current challenges of today in the last remaining public housing projects called Foote Homes. This piece further connects to the imagery and ideas throughout the film.
