Visible from Hyde Street outside the Asian Art Museum are Chanel Miller’s I was, I am, I will be, Jas Charanjiva’s Don’t Mess With Me, and Jenifer K Wofford’s Pattern Recognition. Each mural addresses feminist issues, such as challenging the binary of expected gender roles and creating safe and empowering public spaces. Like these artists, we can all sometimes feel restricted by other people’s perceptions of us. How do others view you? How do you view yourself?
