Kesha Ram — first woman of color and youngest woman in history elected to Vermont State Senate

This portrait of Kesha Ram is an assemblage made of non-recyclable trash on canvas coated with PVA. Ms. Ram is the only person of color in the Vermont senate. This piece is a portrait of a woman; however, the medium leaves the viewer an open-ended question: Why is this piece made of trash? The title, though seemingly direct, also leaves room for questions such as “What is the importance that Ms. Ram is the first person of color in the Vermont senate?”
