INTERCONNECTED 
By Jimmy Danko in collaboration with Robert Sha

‘Interconnected’ depicts the powerful union of Black and Gold allyship to uplift and connect our shared communities through this painful period in America - marked by heightened racial inequality and a global epidemic.

At the outset of the pandemic, Jimmy Danko was producing a fantastic series of Lego-inspired paintings to raise money for Feeding America. His idea incorporated two stacked Legos as a simple metaphor for staying connected with friends and loved ones. 

Robert approached Jimmy about the potential for adapting his original concept with a symbolic configuration of black and gold Lego pieces to represent Black and Asian allyship. He was all in.

In the construction of this artwork, no one color takes prominence over the other. It is the collaboration of both pieces that make the sum of their parts greater. From the onset, it was essential that the connection and the colors portrayed a purposeful relationship where one color both supports and uplifts the other. A Yin and Yang duality is formed to represent the complementary and interconnected relationship the Black and Asian communities have historically shared. 

This piece is a declaration to our Black friends, families and colleagues, that they are not alone in this fight. We, the Asian community, stand in solidarity and allyship to continue building and promoting a more tolerant, accepting, and equal nation for us all.
