Fons Americanus

In the scope of using art to portray social commentary, I found this really cool piece of artwork by Cara Walker. The statue is commentary on the slave trade histories of Africa, America, and Europe. In addition, the production process was environmentally conscious and used non-toxic and recyclable/reusable materials.
