Yesterday in honor of Juneteenth, Maurice Harris, co-creator and host of Quibi’s CENTERPIECE unveiled I Am Somebody, a 12-foot floral installation honoring the unarmed victims who were killed by police. The victims’ names, including Breonna Taylor, Alton Sterling, Michael Brown and many more were displayed on the base of the creation. The labor of love was created over two days and included 5,000 carnations, 50 eremurus and 50 allium flowers.
The installation was housed outside of Harris’ businesses, his floral shop Bloom & Plume and Bloom & Plume Coffee.
On his show CENTERPIECE, Maurice sits down with creatives like Tessa Thompson, Melina Matsoukas, Rashida Jones, Maya Rudolph and more to discuss their creative process. At the end of each episode, he creates a centerpiece installation inspired by their conversation. Download Quibi to watch all CENTERPIECE episodes.
