“My piece is about Racism and Black Lives Matter and wants to show that everyone is the same on the inside even if not on the outside. It relates to the first article of Human Rights, freedom of press, religion, speech, petition, assembly. In my piece the only thing in color is the heart stating that everyone has a heart. No one should be racist because we all have the same parts to make us, just some have a different skin color.”
ARTIST BIO: Grace Stringer 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.
