Julia Dzikiewicz WOMEN’S MARCH Encaustic with crystals and lights 2017 60”x96”
On January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, between three and five million people joined the Women’s March protests across the United States, the largest protest in American history. That day, between 1 and 1.6 percent of all Americans joined the protests. This painting depicts several of the speakers at the Washington march, the heart of the protest. At the center, a singing Alicia Keys punches a KKK nightrider and a Nazi motorcyclist. At her sides are veteran activist Gloria Steinem and six-year-old illegal immigrant Sophie Cruz, the youngest of the speakers at the Washington rally.
