Burlesque was part of the team organizing Chroma Zone, Minnesota's first ever mural festival. Between September 7 - 14, 2019, 12 large outdoor murals were painted by local, national, and international artists in Saint Paul's Creative Enterprise Zone neighborhood. In conjunction with the festival, we produced and published art prints with six of the featured artists.
Christina is part of ArtCrop, a collective of Hmong artists whose work explores and reconnects to their cultural roots. Located in the Creative Enterprise Zone, ArtCrop has created murals from downtown Saint Paul to rural farm landscapes leaving evidence to spark the next generation’s own love stories of culture and identity. Their work pushes Hmong aesthetics and cultural innovation influenced by their people across a global diaspora.
Her new print "Day 320" is an illustration of Saint Paul-based Hmong American artist Koua Mai Yang (also pictured in the photo below), who embarked on a journey to explore all aspects of her heritage and what it means to her by wearing Hmong clothing every day. The hidden glow in the dark message reminds everyone to BE YOURSELF!
