May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money
in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
Let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically
wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be a loving embrace to our neighbors.

Lady Liberty is Laura Loving's most popular image. She hangs in almost every state in the U.S. and in countries all over the world. This powerful symbol of the United States has always represented a progressive intellectual worldview.  Lady Liberty has been a feminist long before women had the right to vote. The poem inscribed on her very body has preached the benefits of inclusivity and acceptance even when the many of our citizens struggle to get on board.

In the words of the artist... "Hands down, my favorite image is Lady Liberty. She is the first painting I created after moving to New York in the summer of 2000, which is where I've always wanted to live. I always have felt this image is a victory painting. Sometimes, I think it is a self-portrait. There is such an optimism and magic about this painting that even I don't understand. Lady Liberty helped me launch my career as a full-time artist and she brought me my first real commercial success. I have sold Lady Liberty again and again. I have been commissioned to paint her in all sizes, in daytime settings, in nighttime settings, for both public and private collectors. One of my former art professors once asked me if I ever tired of painting her. I don't, and I continue to see her in new ways."
 
All Lady Liberty images are available in prints on canvas and paper, ceramic tiles, note cards and original paintings.  Read about the commission process  here.

In 2008, I was asked by the New York Junior League to create a mural at Tony Dapolito Rec Center in Soho. I was so excited because this historic recreation center also houses one of Keith Haring's murals. Lady Liberty is on the second floor basketball courts overlooking the pool where Keith's masterpiece swims across the wall sheltering the pool from the streets of New York.

After nearly a decade, it's time to touch up the art!

Anyone want to volunteer to come help me on Sunday, May 20th from 10am til 2pm?  Email me at lauraloving@lauraloving.com for details.
