Cassandra’s Freedom to Love, a wonderful tangle of male lovers, is the model for the larger than life Freedom to Love Monument Project, which aspires to create a shrine for practicing the right to remembrance of those who have passed from AIDS or homophobic violence. Its objective is to raise a monument to the freedom to love and the love of freedom, to the lives extinguished by vicious fanatics, to the bravery of those who live with HIV/AIDS… and to those who are gone but still here.
Cassandra’s SOULJA: Peace and Love Warriors
SOULJA, Cassandra’s Peace and Love Warriors, is a one woman show at the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art, featuring bronze sculptures, large prints and mobile murals for social movements, which bear witness to an astounding personal galaxy. Cassandra is committed to producing empowering metaphors, be they altars or monuments that explore the full gamut of liberation. Whether painting murals for garment workers, casting bronze to commemorate indigenous resistance or sculpting the freedom to love, she wields the power of the image to invite the beholder to see, feel and act.
