Peace Mural to Stir Immigration Debate

Artist Huong has created a new mural the “IMMIGRATION Wall of Borders.” The over eight foot tall and 200 foot long immigration-themed exhibit will be unveiled to the public on January 14, 2011 at the Artist’s Studio at 7900 SW 77 Avenue from 2pm to 6pm. The mural is sponsored by the Peace Mural Foundation whose mission it is to promote civic education and action for peace and justice through the arts. This interactive project is aimed at continuing dialogue on immigration-related issues so near to Huong’s heart. Huong arrived in the United States in 1975 when fleeing the fall of Saigon with her young son. “Art can do what talking heads cannot. It inspires, disturbs, and evokes personal responsibility,” said Huong. After the unveiling on January 14, the foundation will be seeking a public space to house the exhibit.
