We are at a turning point: a week and a half before the midterm elections.

When the Supreme Court responded by creating a new piece of artwork “Lady Liberty: Tears of Row” to express my disgust at Roe v. Wade, women no longer have the right to decide what to do with their bodies. Then I decided to use this work to encourage people to fight and vote for candidates who defend our freedom.

Artists have long used images of tears to evoke heartfelt responses, and the word “grief” is defined as misfortune that causes great suffering. I took a picture of the Statue of Liberty and instinctively shed tears on her cheeks and added the word “cry” to her crown, symbolizing the brutal suffering that millions of Americans inflicted when the Supreme Court on women’s rights had struck. Let’s decide. ,

We all have the power to bring about change during the mid-term elections. Each of us has our own individual strengths and talents.

What can you do to protest the horrific Supreme Court decision? excess. Look into your heart and remember what happened. Connect with your personal power.

In an emergency – and this is an emergency – we can work together to discover the solution that is within our reach: the power of the vote. I am doing my part by donating prints of my artwork to pro-abortion fundraisers.

I hope that grandmothers, mothers, daughters and granddaughters will see “Tears of Cry” as a reminder of the freedom of choice women have seen for 50 years.

Make no mistake: this is a threat to our democracy. Those who took away our right to make decisions will end up trying to deprive us of other rights that we worked so hard to achieve. Please join me in finding creative ways to make a difference in this midterm election.

I am honored to be selected by the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU in Miami Beach for a solo exhibition at the museum from November 16 to March 26. Since this is such a critical time when women’s rights are at the fore, I wanted the exhibition to be titled “Lady Liberty” to draw attention to the issue. I’m especially grateful that “Tears of Cry” is making the museum debut during Mummy’s Art Week.

Let us ensure that the will of the majority is restored, so that Lady Liberty’s tears of pain are not in vain. The freedom to make decisions, for which women fought so hard, should be respected.
