Opa-locka residents cheer the power of art — and all people

October 26, 2017

(Miami Herald)A new artwork called “All Power  to All People” — sculpted like an afro pick — is on permanent display on  the lawn of an Opa-locka apartment complex, where it is described as a  symbol of empowerment for the community. Internationally known artist Hank  Willis Thomas of New York came to South Florida for the Oct. 17  dedication at Town Center Apartments, 420 Aladdin St. in Opa-locka.

“This is really exciting  for me to [have a permanent] piece in a place like this, having the  history that it does,” said Thomas, originally of New Jersey. “For me  [this moment] reminds me of a thing my friend said … ‘beauty is a basic  service.’ I hope they are happy to have it. I hope they embrace it. I  hope it becomes a source of pride, a source of coming together and  communicating and building a better future.”
