A community-based art project that seeks to connect communities through pulling up a chair and sharing stories of positivity about Strong Women of Toledo.
I interpreted the vibrancy and perseverance of a home filled with life, surrounded by one another and in close quarters cooking for each other constantly as a joyful celebration of interaction and play. A family of many children rise up and fulfill a family dream, building from a recipe of love and break bread together with each other and now the public. Under the care and teaching of a strong Mother a home can carry on a lasting legacy of family and fraternity that started here in Toledo with a 16 year old woman from Selma hiding in a Station Wagon. Their story is now their menu, shared with all of us at J’mae’s Home Cooking in Toledo.
