Rituals of Commemoration is the product of seven years of work; breaking down the silos between people, cultures and expanding opportunities to engage with authentic, real-world issues.  

The sculpture installation serves as a space holder, a memory legacy that will ensure that the names and lives of Black men, women and youth killed by police are not forgotten, giving the lives lost dignity and respect, an acknowledgement of a hard history and difficult present. It cannot be viewed as an aesthetic object alone but as a starting place for asking questions about our assumptions on history, culture and the consequences of systemic inequities, oppression, educational systems, and social justice. This work is embedded in real world contexts that are reflected in and reflect back on authentic questions and issues that shape our modern world; influencing opinion and creating awareness that encourages civic dialogue.

While differing views may sometimes raise discomfort and dissent, this work is a conduit for open sharing, learning with partnerships formed, alongside individuals in cultural, educational, and learning institutions that affect civic action and encourage citizen participation locally, nationally, and internationally. “Through art and a continual cycle of education and engagement, I hope that we can build and maintain meaningful relationships among different communities and can move from learning about justice to creating it.” Rosa Naday Garmendia
