Description:
More than 125,000 Mexicans have lost their lives since 2007 in a human
rights catastrophe brought on by a war on drugs, failed economic
policies, and social neglect. But these very circumstances have
ignited the human spirit of Mexican citizens working toward social
change. Art remains a powerful means of free expression and
collective healing, and a tool for basic economic support. Arte Sin
Fronteras features artists and artisans who work within
community-based projects that seek to alleviate poverty and violence,
assist those affected by mental illness and help people improve their
lives and their community. Profits from sales will support
their efforts for peace and healing.
