Latino Roosters

by: Michael Rivera,

Diversity is the spice that flavors the soup of humanity.

quote by: Dr. Edward Lin, President, The Gulfcoast Chinese American Association

Artist Statement

I picked the rooster/hen (images) to represent the differences and similarities within the Latino culture. Roosters forever symbolize Caribbean Latino culture to me because of their nature and importance. Many rituals cannot be held without these animals. Perhaps we can keep our inherent rituals and embrace our differences.
