Directed by Z.S. Grant and released on Pharrell Wiliams’ iamOTHER Youtube channel, the three-part video captures powerhouse artist/activist Favianna Rodriguez’s art-driven campaign to fight back against anti-immigration legislation. Passionate and inspired, Favianna enlists other fearless artists and activists to tell their stories and expose the ironies of anti-immigration policies. Not exclusively political, the Voice of Art series centers on the unique power of art as a catalyst for social change. Favianna’s owns art embraces the Monarch Butterfly to represent the beauty and dignity of immigrants, a symbol that supporters have collectively adopted in protest of immigration laws.
The buzz has been nonstop since the video series was released last week, with fellow artist/activist Shepard Fairey featuring it on the front page of his website. So whether you’re a U.S. Citizen, Non-Citizens, or simply just an art lover – you must check out the inspiring “Migration is Beautiful” and spread the word!
