‘Sophie Holding the World Together’, 2017 Mural commissioned by the San Jose Museum of Art, in collaboration with The Propeller Group. . “No Te Rindas Esta es la Hora y el Mejor Momento Don't Give Up This is the Hour and the Best Moment Đừng Bỏ Cuộc Bây giờ là phút giây và khoảnh khắc tuyệt vời nhất” (-M. Benedetti) . In these times when fear, inequity and divisiveness are so prevalent, this mural is intended to convey hope and empathy. The figure is based on an inspiring young activist named Sophie Cruz, who represents mixed-status families and advocates for immigration reform in the US. When I met Sophie to shoot reference photos of her I asked if there was anything she wanted to hold for the photographs, and she came back holding a globe. This seemed perfect, while the lotus was added to symbolize the beauty that can grow from humble origins. . I’d like to thank everyone who helped make this mural happen, and everyone who came by offering positive feedback. The response from the people in San Jose was some of the most encouraging and supportive I’ve received anywhere, I’m very grateful. . Many thanks to Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Matt Lucero, The Propeller Group, Lauren lolens and the San José Museum of Art, Empire Seven Studios, Will Moran, the Children’s Discovery Museum, The Knight Foundation, University Arts, Tad Freese and Brook Hartzell, Beverly and Peter Lipman, Lubliner, Dipti and Rakesh Mathur, Ian Reinhard, and SGSR. Additional thanks to Sophie + su familia, Eric Heights, Yosi Sergant, Define American, Yosimar Reyes, Bích Cao, and anyone else who helped or showed love.
