aThe MUSE Awards 2020 poster is D. YaeL Kelley’s work titled Seven — A Thousand Portals.
“Seven invites you to meditate on the universality of numbers, their importance and resonance through time, culture, religion and science. It explores my understanding of what I call Corn Mother Concepts. The binding connection of love. Our understanding of ourselves within our community. My grandmother taught me that I was a part of my community, that the health of that community depended upon me — and that my identity was not who I claimed to be but who claimed me.”
