Featured Artwork

Portrait of Breonna Taylor
Rudy Shepherd, Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician shot 8 times by Louisville Police who entered her apartment without knocking, 2020.

Rudy Shepherd

Rudy Shepherd's Portraits series depicts victims of police violence. Law enforcement’s fatal toll on Black and Latinx lives has induced anger and anguish, fueling a movement for racial justice and police reform that has spread across all fifty states. Shepherd’s installation not only mourns and humanizes these tragic losses, but also raises awareness of systemic racial inequality and historic police brutality.
