In a 12-foot hand-illustrated mural, public artist ChelseaRitter-Soronen reflects the stories shared with her from Syrian people currently displaced because of war. With the goal of raising awareness ofa global critical conversation, these visuals are a chronological depiction of several refugees' arduous journeys, from pre-war to asylum to a seemingly infinite wait for what comes next. Chelsea will be exhibiting alongside Displacement and Migration in STLAG's new curated gallery.
Then Join us on May 6, 2017 at 10 am for Chelsea's artist talk. She will share audio and video of personal interviews with refugees. She will also share information about her St. Louis organization, Chalk Riot and the change that public art can bring.
