The Every Human Empathy Campaign is a series of installations, murals, and art works created by Denver-based artist Moe Gram to encourage viewers to explore the depth of one’s empathy. What does EVERY HUMAN need, feel, or do?
As you take stickers from this installation, you are encouraged to ponder the prompts, explore every possibility, and try to consider EVERY HUMAN alive. When you forget to consider every human, we encourage you to stick wit’ it. It’s not always easy, but don’t give up. Make the effort. Explore the depth of your empathy and question why your empathy may have limits. Because EVERY HUMAN is worthy of it.
About the Artist
Moe Gram is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Denver and works on a diverse array of mediums that include painting, mural, collage, and installation. Gram graduated from California State University Bakersfield with a major in Visual Arts and a minor in Cultural Studies with a focus in Italian Culture, during which she participated in a 6-month museum studies and studio arts program in Florence, Italy.
Gram’s work involves themes of identity, empathy, human connection, and self-reflection. Immediately upon viewing her work, you are met with a boom of vivid colors, movement, noise, and texture that settles into a controlled and intentional vibration. The viewer’s eyes harmoniously dance across the piece along the lines and curves of her brush strokes, and end on the powerful, simple message at its core. The beauty of Gram’s work is beyond the aesthetics of her carefully curated color palette and found within her request of encouraging the viewer to dig deeper within themselves. This is illustrated in her mural for Black Love Mural Festival in 2020, a recent example of Gram’s social justice work; inspired by her personal experience, observation, and self-reflection, she presented a potent message of empathy. The audience contemplates the meaning of empathy, how it pertains to the self, and what it truly means to extend empathy to others.
