Currently on exhibit at the Vermillion art gallery and bar on Capitol Hill, “Remember Me is both a living poem and a visual benediction to those so often overlooked, dismissed, or forgotten in our communities. Inspired by the power of poetic connections, Remember Me is a metaphor for our unbroken bloodline of human resilience and survival.”
The exhibit features photographs of individuals and a wall where people can write passages for others to read. messages range from poetry to self-descriptions, to messages decrying Donald Trump and white people.
According to Vermillion’s website, “Vermillion presents selections from a growing archive of collaborative, multimedia works collected for more than 10 years from various local communities including incarcerated women, homeless women, women of color, differently-abled women, women surviving mental illness, teenaged women and children.”
