Uncaged Art: Exhibit of art by incarcerated migrant teens
January 18 - February 21
“UNCAGED ART”: AN EXHIBIT OF ARTWORK BY INCARCERATED MIGRANT TEENS
Migrant teens incarcerated at Tornillo Detention Center in Texas were asked by teachers to create artwork that depicted their home cultures, architecture and geography. Only a tiny fraction of the 400 works produced were saved when the detention center was closed down. Those works are currently displayed at the Centennial Museum at the University of El Paso. A traveling version of the show was created in New Hampshire using prints from a professional photographer. The art, vibrant and moving, shows these young artists’ love for their Central American countries.
