Megan’s work





Reviews of Megan’s work:

“Seeking response from an unknown audience is the strength of this piece (She Never Shed a Tear Nor Voiced a Single Complaint), while highlighting the media coverage on gender issues. Her methodology of amplifying the headlines and providing a ground for discussion and engagement correlates with her intention of producing a socially conscious piece.” - Fatos Ustek

"This project adheres to an important and considered tradition of female artists subverting the norms of representation. In particular Grooming Fixations collapses the distinction between images of women as either beautiful or abject." - Royal Academy curator Emma Enderby *

Exhibited internationally:

schools in Ferguson area will remain close until next week and many students are falling behind

The strength of the Ferguson community in the face of the war zone the police have created is truly a thing of beauty.

The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent
8. This is Not the first time Ferguson’s police have been heavy handed with it’s Black residents  - Innocent Black man beaten by cops, then charged with bleeding on police officer’s uniforms 
9. So please - don’t get it twisted
