This June’s Pride Month comes at a pivotal time. A coronavirus mixed with riots and mass protest may further point the country toward greater equality and justice for all.
Amid the brouhaha between Black Lives Matter and organizers of LA Pride, the latest “bulb” installation brings together both causes after a planned solidarity march failed to materialize.
#Plantpride is a temporary mixed media limited series. The concept being that if people see these “bulbs” in a public place or online, they will be inspired to share the image across social media including Instagram with the hashtag #plantpride.
“You plant a bulb, and something grows,” Medici previously stated referring his #Planthope series. “Maybe #Plantpride can help grow both movements in the hearts and minds of people in Los Angeles and across the country.”
