Ancestral Passage

by: Johanna Porter, Issaquah, Washington

Foreigners are simply new neighbors.

quote by: Seth Morano, Sarasota, Florida

Artist Statement

My artwork honors all the brave women who leave behind their homelands, family and friends to seek freedom, and a better life in a new place. This mixed-media, digital drawing was created in response to the very real struggle refugees face. This "message in a bottle" is a wish for tolerance and multicultural acceptance.
