The Dreamer is a 3D installation piece that I created out of everything I learned on a trip to Brownsville, Texas. After meeting Coyotes, crooked lawyers, dreamers and a lot of undocumented immigrants, I felt compelled to create art to ignite positive change.
By replacing the white Gerber baby with a hispanic child, I felt it hit home to mothers and all of humanity who grew up on the stuff. Changing the name from Gerber to Dreamer was the perfect pop-art touch to the 4 x 5 foot piece. Give your love to the dreamer because the dreamer is as American as it gets.
