What a great project! Monrovia identifies and celebrates individuals who have made an impact on their community-- and sometimes the country -- by telling their stories through public art. I was so honored to create a piece about Kate Wright, a former slave who dedicated her life to serving others. With help from the community, she built small cottages on her land and took care of people suffering from tuberculosis, who had no family or friend connections. Her commitment to helping others inspired many to step forward and contribute, making the community and the city stronger.
