“I Am Trayvon Martin,” a Video By Kris Burns

About 100 people attended a rally for slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin on Sat March 31 in Nyack’s Veterans’ Park on Main Street. Artist Kris Burns, a 20 year resident of the village, was there with her camera to document the event and create this video, I Am Trayvon Martin.

A coalition of seven groups organized organized the event to give a voice to all individuals who have been marginalized and disenfranchised, hoping to draw attention to “those who have been murdered or harmed because of hate.”

Kristina Burns multi-media installations have been known to pop up in diners, factories, elevator shafts, street corners and yes, galleries around Rockland County & New York City.  She is an artist-in residence at the Edward Hopper House Art Center and recently created and coordinated Hopper Happens, a series of public ‘€œpop-up’€ projections and performances celebrating the Year of Edward Hopper. Kris received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts.
