This week's image is by Mexican artist © Dulce Pizón. Her brilliant series, Superheroes, about immigrant workers in New York, aims to “raise questions of both our definition of heroism and our ignorance of the workforce that fuels our ever-consuming economy.” She made the series into an 18 month calendar that will benefit the NICE- New Immigrant Community Empowerment, located in Jackson Heights, Queens. You can purchase a copy here for just $12! This is such a perfect Christmas gift, I am purchasing one for myself!
