“My art piece is about the Black Lives Matter movement, or more specifically, Article 1 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the right to equality. More specifically it focuses on racial equality. It means to convey the deep feelings those who face racial discrimination deal with.”ARTIST BIO: Alyssa Kutchera is a Grade 11 student at Butler Tech School of Art (SOA).
PROJECT: After learning about human rights in Mrs. Valerie Folz’ Government classes at Butler Tech School of the Arts, 45 high school students chose a human rights issue they wanted to research. Then in Mrs. Mary Catherine Ruby’s Visual Art + Design classes they visually communicated their voice through their art using symbolic imagery to represent the human rights issue they had selected.
