The Migrant’s Alphabet Project

I’m so thrilled to have created work for the Migrant’s Alphabet project that opened October 4th in Bridgeport, CT.

W is the fearless Women
who stand up to protest
raising their voices against
separation of families and children’s arrest

 

Inspired by a book from 1846 (The Anti-Slavery Alphabet),  leading mixed media artists and activists from all over the US  started a project, called the Migrant’s Alphabet, to bring awareness, education, and conversation to the current crisis of immigration in the United States and around the world. 

The Migrant’s Alphabet exhibit of 26 mixed media artworks debuted at City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport CT, on October 4, it will then travel to a variety of venues across the nation.

A book will be published of all of the art and the accompanying poetry. All proceeds from the sales of the book will be donated to organizations defending and working to better immigrant communities.

The Migrant’s Alphabet website will serve as a resource for education, links to donate funds, the art on view with statements and links to the individual artists, and information about the exhibits and events.

Keep creating,

Judy
