Jenny Cunningham urn

(Click to see other side)

Jenny Cunningham is a first-generation Afro-latina born in Brooklyn, now based in Chicago. Her art is inspired by many things including nature, her love of culture, queso blanco, and the motto of her fellow Ticos (Costa Ricans)… ‘Pura Vida.’

Her urn has a dark purple background covered with bright spots like lightening bugs. There are also birds scattered throughout with rainbow wings. On one side there is a golden cage with the door open. To Cunningham, a social pollinator is someone who can plant the seeds of change or helps light the way to what change should look like. “Art is important, and it’s one of the best ways to communicate ideas and thoughts, without words getting in the way.”
