Artists Adrian Aguilera and Betelhem Makonnen have teamed up with Philbrook Museum to produce an exclusive artists’ edition lapel pin of their work untitled (a flag for John Lewis or a green screen placeholder for an America that is yet to be), (2020) currently on display at Philbrook Museum.
This piece is a part of a continuing series of reimagined U.S. flags. In this work, Aguilera and Makonnen honor American civil rights organizer and Georgia Congressman John Lewis and all past and present liberation workers who continually fight for freedom, justice, and equal rights for all Americans. Aguilera and Makonnen's reimagined flag asks us to consider our role in the construction of our American future.
In an initiative developed in collaboration with Dr. Tiffany Crutcher, all net proceeds from the sale of this artists’ edition will support the Black Wall Street Memorial, a project powered by the Tulsa Community Remembrance Coalition.
