Freedom 58 Project is a collaborative movement working to end modern-day slavery and violent oppression around the world. Through the Faces of Freedom exhibit, artists utilize their talents to bring light to the true stories behind the scourge of slavery and violent oppression. The exhibit invites visitors to follow survivors’ real life journeys from oppression to rescue, restoration, and ultimately freedom. The paintings, each crafted by a critically-acclaimed artist, give viewers a chance to enter into a victim’s experience, reflect on their own stories of injustice, and inspire action. Faces of Freedom exhibit tours nationally, designed to travel to schools, universities, libraries, churches, airports, hospitals and other civic venues. Marcene is one of the exhibiting artists.
