Pink Hats on the Wall

When one has a small group but a large voice the changes that can take place in society can be huge.

Gallup’s latest update on U.S. abortion attitudes finds 58% of Americans opposed to overturning the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, while 32% are in favor. Since 1989, between 52% and 66% of U.S. adults have wanted to maintain the landmark abortion decision. Today’s support roughly matches the average over that three-decade period. – Lydia Saad: June 19, 2021

The past number of months have been dedicated in the studio in working on a series of six paintings / prints that address the necessity of the the visualization of the support for a woman’s constitutional and SCOTUS supported right to reproductive choice. While the march on Washington was quite a while ago in the history of protests and marches, the image and symbolism of the hat still stand strong.

Thank you Abby Korb for the creation of the pink hat. This will get its own frame and artwork (a little down the road).
