There is a sense of frustration Detroiters experience every time we find out more information on the ways our health and environment is compromised by dirty industry that we live around. There are questions that occur, such as “How can this be? Who is making a decision to approve of this? Who is benefitting from this? Why is this ok? Are there ways to change it? What do I do now that I know this?” This internal struggle can manifest in art for the sake of expression, and/or for the sake of connecting with others who share these feelings, and/or for the sake of spreading the awareness. This show is a way to share these images.
