Sofia Maldonado was commissioned to create a mural in midtown Manhattan by the Times Square Alliance. The Mural has caused some consternation and apparently some even protested it.
These images send a variety of messages. There are those that would say that because of the race of the women involved it makes these images problematic even though they were created by a woman of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent. Others would say that these are reclaiming images that we have shied away from and that the women depicted have a right to take up space.
I am going to turn this over to you and ask what do you think of these images? How do they touch you and do you find them appropriate for public display?
