Harvesting the Wisdom of Our Ancestors (cream)



In stock

This image was created for a community art-build with SF-based environmental justice organization PODER, screenprinting bandanas dyed with natural colors from amaranth grown at their urban farm. Thanks to Xochitl Flores and Urban Campesinx for the amaranth dye flower-bending wisdom, and thanks to the San Francisco Arts Commission for supporting this work.
