Currently, over 69,500 children are literally being held in cages inside detention centers across the United States. So far, nine children have died, the youngest only two years old.
This project recognizes the children who have died and those who still have a chance to survive and reunite with their families. Over 60 students contributed to the art installation. In testimonials, students share how heart breaking it is to put innocent children in detention camps because, "no child should be denied their parents, or hugs from loved ones when they are sick and scared."
The installation, "WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE FREE," is an invitation to consider the sensory experiences of "FREEDOM," and how the expression of our daily freedom can define a life, a nation and a humanity.
