Trayvon Martin Luther King Jr. Lynching(s) Without the Tree(s) Urn April 4th, 2018

Trayvon Martin Luther King JR. Lynching(s) Without the Tree(s), In Honor of Trayvon Benjamin Martin Born February 5, 1995 Killed February 26, 2012 (aged 17) and Dr. Martin Luther King JR. Born January 15th, 1929, Assassinated April 4th, 1968, Memphis TN.

On the night of February 26, 2012, Laurie M. took her favorite black hoodie and hung it from an old wooden hanger, hanging it from the molding in her Gilded Age parlor room the night Trayvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. It has been hanging there ever since collecting dust as a stark reminder of the racial inequalities (lynchings) in America.

Laurie M.’s favorite black hoodie, 22” x 30”, six years of accumulated dust, hoodie Columbia Apparel, ca. 2000’s), from Laurie M.’s personal wardrobe, her grandmother Eleanore’s wooden hanger, re-purposed museum case from George Washington’s Mount Vernon Museum, indigo enamel paint containing true indigo pigment and crushed oxycodone, hand blown glass ornament, blue ribbon, jingle bell, ashes contained in inverted mastaba urn from Laurie M.’s personal journals, one white rose, white orchids and various ephemera from the time of Trayvon Benjamin Martins killing, from various media outlets, written words and ephemera representing Trayvon Benjamin Martin that were ritualistically incinerated on what would have been Trayvon Benjamin Martin’s 23rd birthday on February 5th, 2018.

On the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination Laurie M. had to deinstall her original Case Study at Gallery Aferro. The hoodie went to a fellow artist and the urn went back into Laurie M.'s personal collection after adding into the urn a I Have a Dream button.
