Loving Vs Virginia, laser cut watercolor painting on paper, 38x29.5 inches ©2018
Loving v. Virginia (1967) was the Supreme Court decision which invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage. This painting is based on a photograph I found online, (artist unknown). It is of the plantiffs, Richard and Mildred Loving. The text laser cut into the painting is the Opinion Of The Court from their Supreme Court case.
