MY SUNSHINE

Artist: Dare Coulter

“I began creating positive imagery of people of color at a time when I felt we needed it most. I was tired of depictions of us being in pain, and needed to visualize our joy. I illustrated “You Are My Sunshine” so that black and brown children could see themselves in the spaces of positivity that they do exist in. This objective includes paintings, murals, and will eventually include monumental sculptures.”
