“My art piece is about gender equality and women’s rights. We are all human and deserve equality. Women face day to day sexism in the work force, including sexual harassment and unequal pay.” ARTIST BIO: Amber Wurzelbacher is a Grade 12 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.
