I wanted to create something that shows no matter what color, race, or religion you are, there is always a helping hand that can pick you up from the bottom or bring you to the top.

I created a skyline and thought that would be symbolic of a city coming together. The flag is for freedom. I wrote together we rise to show what I was trying to represent. When people come together they work best together.

The orange and blue represent fire and how it can be light and dark. The fire on the bottom represents that even though there is fire, hate, and anger we can rise. The words represent different diversities. The people standing together represent my hope that together we can stand. Together we can rise. Stand together against hate. We can succeed.

I made this canvas to show that everyone is equal. I made the hands overlapping to show that anybody, any color can help each other. I made the "peace and love" to show that everybody should love and keep peace among people.

My artwork is about equality. The blue and red represent people being different. We should accept people for who they are. The world with the tape represents how freedom, peace, joy and equality hold the world together. We should form a community with acceptance.

My piece is called "Together We Rise" to show the racial diversity of Nashua, New Hampshire. The background has many partially differing colors, each with a different amount of opacity. This is to who that at the surface, everything seems similar but if you take a closer look, everything is diverse. Also, there is a shape that is similar to the outline of an ear. This means that love binds and holds community together.
