I AM A CHILD
This photo exhibit shines a light on the inhumane practice of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border. The brainchild of artistic director Paola Mendoza and photographer Kisha Bari, the display of over 30 black-and-white images of protesting children ages 3-10 evokes a visceral reaction to their sheer innocence and is a direct appeal to society's humanity. Showing through December 2018.
