This "sculpture" is composed of a board game of my creation that includes a table with colored chairs. You can look at it, OR you can actually play it. Depending on where it is shown and the gallery or museum's policies, viewers can actually sit down and "play" the art work.

With the rise of the concept of "Political Correctness" in the 1990's, I saw how everyday people became afraid to talk openly about race/gender/identity issues for fear of being judged, ridiculed or even fired from their jobs. Today, the "Call Out" and "guilty until proven innocent" culture of social media continue to hamper honest dialog about these important issues.
