SOCIETY'S CAGE: A BOLD EXPERIENTIAL INSTALLATION HIGHLIGHTING THE HISTORIC FORCES OF RACIALIZED STATE VIOLENCE

    I would like to make you aware of an initiative we are taking to help advance the discussion around social injustice.

    Society's Cage is a timely interpretive installation born in the aftermath of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor murders as our society reckons with institutional racism and white supremacy. The public installation features a bold interpretive pavilion sculpted to symbolize the historic forces of racialized state violence. The experience educates visitors and functions as a sanctuary to reflect, record, and share personal thoughts. It is conceived in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement as a mechanism for building empathy and healing.
