Artifacts of Human Trafficking
There are just some things we don’t talk about…
We invite you to shine a light into the darkness through art, as we explore the pervasive sex trafficking industry in the United States, through Artifacts of Human Trafficking, an installation created by Austin artist, Amie Stone King with accompanying 2-D mixed media works from artists around the world based on the themes of desperation, isolation and deceit.
Artifacts opens on January 5, 2018, and runs until January 21, 2018. Gallery hours are Friday – Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Artist Reception, Friday, January 5th 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The show will then travel to the Dean & Diana R. Garland School of Social Work, Baylor University, Waco, Texas from early February to mid-March.
“Art walks a very fine line when dealing with a taboo subject. It begs the question, ‘How do you welcome people into a space, call them to action through emotion and then leave them equipped with the tools needed to be part of the solution?’” --King
