Visions from the Inside 4

“My son’s first birthday was here. I would like to get out of here. I’ve been here for a long time. I would like you to help us get out.” -Excerpt from letter

Artist statement: “We cannot be okay with the thought that a mother has to celebrate their child’s birthday behind bars. Their crime was to be responsible and courageous because they defied borders in order to offer a better future for their children. How dare a government punishes a mother’s heroism? Instead, we should be building monuments that celebrate their resistance.” -Julio Salgado
