Artist:Yatika Starr Fields Location: 100 NW 2nd St Contributor's Note: “For me, the work Astonishment of perception is about public engagement and the dialogue of justice. We must pay tribute to and honor the historical and enduring influence of the vibrant, diverse, and contemporary cultures of Indigenous peoples and celebrate how they continue to bring vibrancy to our communities. “Yatika Starr Fields’s mural is made in a public space and is a powerful expression of how the scales of justice have weighed differently on communities over time. It's an important reminder that we need to continue interrogating the meaning and application of justice.” - Rod Bigelow, a member of the Commission on the Arts, is Executive Director and Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.   Yatika Starr Fields is a painter and muralist.
