“See Injustice”-Floyd, Taylor and Lewis in New York

The Union Square Partnership, in collaboration with NYC Park’s Art in the Park Program and Confront Art, unveiled SEEINJUSTICE in Union Square on Thursday, September 30th. Conceived by artist Chris Carnabuci, the installation features three 12 foot bronzed sculptures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Congressman John Lewis. The installation will be on view through October 30th in Union Square Park.

Confront Art worked closely with the families of George Floyd and their charity “We Are Floyd,” the “Breonna Taylor Foundation,” and Congressman John Lewis’ Foundation, “The John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation” as partners of the SEEINJUSTICE series to raise awareness about social justice issues and provide a safe place of healing and community through the creation of public art. The SEEINJUSTICE series is inspired by the events of 2020 and has empowered many to take a stand in demanding justice, as Congressman John Lewis once did. The series aims to honor the lives and ongoing messages through art, tying together three iconic people.

SEEINJUSTINCE is on display at Union Square, a venue that has historically protected the right to free speech and demonstration. Union Square New York City has long brought together people of all ages, races, nationalities, religions, and orientations in the name of community and discourse. The sculptures stand at 12-feet tall, composed of layers of precision-cut wood to craft a detailed and realistic monument of each subject. The exhibition will be on display from October 1 – October 30 in Union Square in New York City. For more information on Confront Art, visit www.confrontart.com.
