Women of Color on the Front Lines

Jul 14, 2020 - Sep 30, 2020


The goal of this project is to challenge the narrative about who in this country is on the front lines of the fight against COVID 19 by honoring women of color physicians with portraits reflecting their determination, talent and tireless work. The project works by having women of color physicians from around the country submit photos of themselves in the PPE they don each day and then recruiting local artists who transform these photos into art. Each portrait is a powerful reminder of the sacrifices these women make daily to serve the communities in which they live and work.
