Basketball tournaments unfold during spring, the season celebrated in Kaila Austin’s mixed media work of embroidery, graphite and acrylic on fabric. Okara Imani as Flora depicts Indianapolis singer Imani as the Roman goddess of spring. “I try to incorporate people from our community into my work and elevate them into art themselves,” says Austin, who paid tribute to famed activists James Baldwin and Audre Lorde in a 2020 Black Lives Matter mural.
