Title: Freedom Seekers

Theme: Personal Connections to Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: Paint, cloth, pop tabs, paper, glue, fabric paint.

About: It’s about freedom and equality, and racism, and hatred. Because of Marines it keeps our peace in, hatred and racism can’t get into the peace, but freedom and equality can. The background is weaving, or forming together. The circle of the peace sign means it’s a unit, the pop tabs are for recycling.
