George Sánchez Calderón (b. 1967, New York): With large-scale, site-specific pieces, Sánchez takes his politically charged art into the community at large. One of his recent projects flashed numbers onto Miami’s famed Freedom Tower to symbolize the journalists killed or imprisoned around the world. Another project, La Bendición, recreated architect Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye under an overpass in one of Miami’s poorest districts. Sánchez has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design. (Cintas for art, 2003-04)
