LIGHTS FOR LIBERTY
On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps, will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to detention camps across country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.
THANK YOU FRONTERA STUDIO FOR PHOTOGRAPHING OUR EVENT
Uncaged Art presents the work of youth, ages 13-17, who were detained at the Tornillo detention center in West Texas. Comprised of paintings, drawings, and handicrafts made of found materials, the work reflects the resiliency, talent, and creativity of young men and women who trekked 2,000 miles from their homes in Central America to reach the United States. Opened in June 2018, Tornillo was the largest detention center for children in the United States with 2,500 youth when it closed in January 2019. The art from the Tornillo detention camp provides us with a window into the personal world of migrant children whose visions and voices have often been left UNHEARD.
This exhibit will be on view from April 13 through October 5, 2019.
