2013 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States run the risk of deportation and their families being torn apart. Michelle’s project, Broken Families: Picking Up the Pieces, is a series of temporary site-specific public art works that will mark locations of immigrant families affected by deportations in Philadelphia. Through in-depth interviews of family members, each piece of created artwork will tell their stories and be documented through photographs and video. Finally, a virtual online map will spread awareness of the current unjust immigration system.
