Kindness Not Cancelled

Lisa a visual artist and designer from Houston, Texas. She currently lives between Portland, Oregon, and Mexico City. In 2019, she completed her masters in design studies from Centro de Diseño, Cine y Televisión in Mexico City. She has over four years experience as a creative director and 10 years as a graphic designer and illustrator.

As a visual artist, her work is based in the cultural identity of Latinx Americans and how this relationship affects the culture in the US; examining oppression and how we can transform suffering into hope. In the summer of 2019, she traveled through Mexico to paint murals in memory of the 283 people who passed away crossing the border in 2018.

This artwork is a product of a project by the Amplifier Design Lab to promote hope and COVID-19 safety.

The Heart + Soul installation is a retrospective of some of the many murals and pieces of art created by artists in collaboration with Beyond Walls. In the fall of 2020, Beyond Walls presented the street art festival Truth Be Told in Lynn, Massachusetts. The artwork featured in the Truth Be Told festival was born of the COVID-19 pandemic and explores the idiosyncrasies of the times. Heart + Soul is a collection of photographs and digital art examining the interplay between community and art. The subjects and symbols within the works reflect the resilience of the diverse people where they reside. As the photographs celebrate the community, Heart + Soul aims to create space that not only reflects the vibrant diversity of the staff and patient community, but celebrates them.

This collection is the result of generous donations from Mass General Imaging and the MGH Office of Equity and Community Health.
