Hidden in Plain Site: Creative Referendums to Human Trafficking
Artist Installations, temporarily sited in cargo containers, Angels Gate Park
April 26 – June 6, 2015
Artistic solutions, also known as creative referendums, developed by nine members of an Artist Team are framed within two cargo containers temporarily sited in Angels Gate Park overlooking the Port – an alluring metaphor given that some people smuggled into the US arrive in shipping containers.

Many children, teens and adults, continuously threatened with extreme violence, are killed while trying to escape, or literally worked to death. Remember, and honor, those who have died.
Leah Laird will lead a remembrance ceremony, allowing participants to think about those who have been lost to human trafficking. There will also be time for those present to share their thoughts, if desired.
