Black Power Naps Park / Parque Siestas Negras


Sweet Pass Sculpture Park

"Black Power Naps Park/Parque Siestas Negras" is an interactive multi-sensory outdoor installation at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park that offers rest as a form of reparation. “It invites visitors to lounge, reclaim idleness and consider the power and energy that has been exhausted from those who are Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC),” said Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa, artists and creators of the installation. “It also looks at historical records documenting the deliberate fragmentation of restorative sleep patterns to subjugate enslaved people.” Black Power Naps has been presented in cities such as Miami and Madrid; this is its first outdoor exhibition. The installation features hammocks and mounds of grass in yonic shapes that welcome multiple resting bodies amid a serene soundscape of wind chimes and a soothing playlist.
