Oct 02, 2015 Art Comes Off the Wall in Greensboro

During August and September, images from the Humanize Not Militarize exhibit were displayed throughout Greensboro, North Carolina. Organizers wanted to achieve the greatest “access” to those they wanted to reach, so they displayed the exhibit in three locations: University North Carolina at Greensboro, and Guilford College, as well as the Interactive Resource Center in downtown Greensboro.  And in addition, they took the art off of the walls and took it with them to demonstrations, meetings and press conferences!

This piece was created for the second annual Mothers in the Struggle Awards dinner hosted by Moms United Against Violence & Incarceration and Black on Both Sides, both Chicago-based organizations interrupting state violence. This year, the poster was gifted to 20 mothers who have been traumatically separated from their kids due to incarceration and other forms of state violence, including murder by police. We honor and uplift their strength and resilience.
