Painting by Numbers Project on Univision! also, ‘Migration is Beautiful’ link

I woke up this morning to find an incredible link waiting for me in my inbox. Several days ago, I spoke with Univision reporter Karla Gomez-Escamilla who wanted to do a story on the Painting by Numbers project. Over the weekend she put together an amazing report on not only the project but the inhumane detention of women by ICE. She went above and beyond the call of duty to really expose the horrific reality of the detention centers; she even included footage from inside these centers. I want to express my gratitude for putting so much effort into this important issue.

You can check out the video here:

I also wanted to highlight another artist who is doing some very  beautiful, powerful work. Her name is Favianna Rodriguez and she is an Oakland based artist and activist. She was recently profiled by a video series called “Voice of Art”. The 3 part video documentary is titled “Migration is Beautiful” and I am attaching the link to part 1 here:
