Introducing
Try Cheatham

TRY CHEATHAM

Try's work comfortably confronts fundamentally opposing ideas of her experiences with aesthetic metaphor. In her professional, volunteer, and artistic work, she seeks to normalize marginalized groups and champion proper representation of all people at seemingly invisible intersections.

THE ART

"For my people, the Purepecha, the monarch butterfly is a sacred being. Every year it migrates north and returns on Dia De Los Muertos. Ancestors said the Butterflies are the spirits of the ones who left returning to spend time with the people. Migration is old as time and present as the air we breathe. This piece represents the innocence of life and its longing to be free. The connection of our bodies to the earth and our spirits to the sky. A butterfly in a jar is sentenced to death and a child in a cage is an abomination. Free our Kids"

THE ART
'Bus-Hood'

"My contribution’s focus for February Black History Month is on merging two heavyweight ideas Race-integration busing (U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision Brown v. Board of Education) and DC Statehood  - a political movement that advocates making the District of Columbia a U.S. state granting  the District voting representation in the Congress and full control over local affairs."
