Faces of Humanity: Painting Portraits of Immigrant Workers
Morales, Selma Arely
MetadataShow full item record
Through the years, immigration to the United States has significantly increased. Immigrants have been drawn to this country by attractive wages and pushed by the poverty in their home countries. Today, immigrant minority groups have been targeted with hate and negativity, creating a wave of panic, and devaluing them as human beings. The hard work that these individuals do mostly remains unseen and unappreciated. They remain invisible. In this thesis I seek to bring light and focus to these individuals’ lives through portraiture, hoping that the viewer can appreciate them and begin to recognize the contributions they make to this country.
