Loving Vs Virginia, laser cut watercolor painting on paper, 38x29.5 inches ©2018

Loving v. Virginia (1967) was the Supreme Court decision that invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage in the United States. This painting is based on a photograph I found online, (artist unknown). It is of the plaintiffs, Richard and Mildred Loving. The text laser cut into the painting is the Opinion Of The Court from their Supreme Court case.
