RICARDO LEVINS MORALES ART STUDIO
Ricardo Levins Morales is an artist and organizer with a studio located on Minnehaha Avenue. Like many small business owners, his day-to-day operations have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic, and more recently, the political uprising following the murder of George Floyd. Through these changes, he continues to raise awareness of the systemic oppression that existed long before the recent crises.
“The art I create - and that we distribute - is intended to be medicinal, supporting people's resilience in the face of oppression. In the current situation we've been making more social media images, coloring pages and both downloadable and salable posters that address the pandemic and its impacts in ways that both inform and comfort. The pandemic has made it obvious (to those who might have missed it) that inequality and injustice are disease vectors. My art supports people's struggles for adequate housing, wages, healthy food and a clean environment - the true building blocks of public health.”
