Last year, she created Holding Space for Nobility: A Memorial for Breonna Taylor at the Ackland Art Museum in North Carolina. There, against a stark white wall, Gay painted happy images of Taylor’s face, showing her as “someone who was loved and is worthy of justice and being seen.” The artist also created an installation of her signature masked figures for Buckhead’s Umi Sushi that helped enforce social-distancing requirements but also took her message of empowerment into an unconventional setting.
