Opening Reception for Uncaged Art

October 12, 2019, 4:30 PM6:30 PM

Come enjoy a lovely evening of art, performance art, a silent auction, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and local beer to support raising awareness of family separations, child detentions, and the Remain in Mexico policies. Funds raised will be for two specific organizations that provide humanitarian aid and legal assistance to the families trapped along our southern border.

Uncaged Art is a unique and moving exhibit created by the children of the Tornillo migrant child detention camp in El Paso, Texas. Before the camp closed a year ago the children there, with the guidance of two teachers, created art pieces to depict the love of their home countries in Central America as well as their experiences in detention. Twenty nine pieces were salvaged from the dumpsters by Father Rafael Garcia. Twenty five of those pieces are the basis of this traveling exhibit.

The opening reception of this traveling exhibit will include a short, live performance by the Recycled Shakespeare Company, readings from Mainers who have witnessed at child detention camps, a silent auction, and good foods. The exhibit will remain in Waterville through October 26.
