Dario Mohr’sSow the Seeds is a call to acknowledge the rich roots of South Bronx residents’ lineages as well as a plea to implement sustainable and healthy environmental practices. A neighbor of Mitchel Houses, Mohr is a witness to the gentrification and heat island effect impacting the community. His artwork intertwines photographic imagery of residents’ hands with painted representations of an African Acacia tree. Seed pods and a double helix strand symbolize the potential for the community to thrive.
A first generation Grenadian, US citizen, Mohr is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and non-profit leader. His work involves the creation of “sacred spaces” referencing his heritage, and expressing commentary on the cultural zeitgeist through immersive sanctuary experiences. Achievements include a BRIO award, and exhibitions at Lewis Latimer House Museum, and Old Stone House. He is also the Founder and Director of AnkhLave Arts Alliance, Inc., a non-profit promoting the recognition and representation of BIPOC artists in contemporary art.
