Still Here by Gaia (2018)

Providence, Rhode Island 02906, United States

Created By: The Avenue Concept


Location: 32 Custom House

"Still Here” was created in co-operation with the Tomaquag Museum. The image features a contemporary young Indigenous woman holding the portrait of Princess Redwing, a Narragansett and Wampanoag elder, historian, folklorist and curator surrounded by native flora. The strawberry, sunflower, lady slipper and redwing blackbird are featured prominently and an endemic cattail springs into the foreground while the invasive phragmites is cast to the margin. "Still Here" is meant to inspire as well as celebrate the resilience of Indigenous people. Read more about this piece on The Avenue Concept blog or in this great article about the mural's launch.
