Groundswell was commissioned by Montefiore Medical Center to engage young women residents of Horizons Juvenile Center in the creation of two new murals for the inside of two Montefiore OB/GYN clinics. This collaboration proved a powerful opportunity to engage women from various economic and cultural backgrounds and allow them to provide meaningful support to one another. Visitors to the Montefiore clinics will be positively impacted by the presence of art, while the young women from Horizons were offered a public platform to share their perspectives and talents while positively impacting the broader community. “Mother of All” depicts a surrealist image of a reclining mother and baby. The mother’s braids and blanket transform into an undulating quilt-like landscape with trees, cities and rivers. In the sky is a pattern of pearls, and diamonds. The color palette includes rich greens, browns, and blues in the sky, as well as metallic gold in the mother’s braids and hints of copper in the landscape.
