With the theme of children and childhood, this exhibition brought together artworks from 35 artists to demand a change to our government’s shameful policy of undocumented family separation. Work was hung floor to ceiling intentionally to create an emotionally charged space with multiple media by contributing artists. Visitors entered a fenced area to see the artwork more closely.
In October, the exhibition will also be accompanied by a pair of participatory events: 1000 Gifts of Decolonial Love and Raise Your Hands Up, a community mural project.
As the Trump administration continues to threaten immigrant rights, we will use ART as a powerful protest tool.
