Artist's description:

This piece was created in reaction to the story of the establishment of the Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas, TX. Referencing the Audubon Society's focus on birds, I wanted to present a nest with a symbolic egg. The egg, as the title suggests is a metaphor for the African American community of Pleasant Grove/ Deadwood emerging victorious, reclaiming the neighborhood despite unimaginable obstacles in the way, including white flight, illegal dumping, a segregated housing market and even push back from the City of Dallas. Usually attributed to an era before 1964, the anti-black initiatives enacted in Pleasant Grove were far more current: the illegal dumping being established (through city authorized permits) in 1985, the dump officially closed in 1997. The Trinity River Audubon Center was an agreed upon compromise as a means to cover up and terraform the massive trash heap because the city could not afford the $100 million price tag to remove the trash.
