WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE FREE * Art Reception : Friday, September 27th, 6-8pm * Warehouse 21, 1614 Paseo De Peralta, Santa Fe, NM
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.
Currently, an undisclosed number of children are being held in cages inside detention centers across the nation. This project recognizes the children who have died and those who still have a chance to survive and reunite with their families.
Over fifty students contributed to the art installation. In testimonials, students share how heart breaking and unjust 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."
Since 2017, the cost to detain and torture children has soared from $38. a day to $750. a day. The youngest child taken from parents was only four months old. The youngest child to die was a year old. Regardless of the expense, children are being denied, soap, tooth brushes, blankets, beds, and proper nutrition. Inside the detention camps, children are told not to cry and not to hug.
