“My art piece relates to Article 1 of Human Rights, the Right to Equality. It is about discrimination against people of color, on how people of color have always faced injustices systematically and socially. We may not be the same culturally or visually but at the end of the day we all have a skeleton, a beating heart, a mind, a voice and opinions.”
ARTIST BIO: Charlie Moore 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.
