The image included in this public collection of art, " Remember TeTe Gulley" was photographed July 27th at a vigil remembering TeTe. Tete Gulley was a 31 year old queer Black transient known by some of her family as Otis. She was found hanging from a tree on the evening of May 27th 2019 in Rocky Butte Park.

The collection is made up of 34 Black artists, Indigenous artists, and artists of color showcasing work in a wide scope of mediums.
