In 2017, Foothill Christian School, located in Glendora, CA, decided to use art as its platform to speak out on issues affecting youth culture. With the help of over 100 volunteers, they created a deeply meaningful art journey on the topic of bias, bigotry and bullying that spanned seven rooms and lasted only one short weekend. Nearly 1,000 people were able to experience the journey and were left longing for more. So in January 2020 for almost 3 weeks, in partnership with Western Christian High School the exhibit opened to the public!
We are compelled to share this important message with you. We cannot stay silent. In a technology rich, privatized, racially tense cultural atmosphere we take a stand against hate, bigotry, and bullying and commit ourselves to the teaching of compassion, love, and empathy.
There comes a time when silence is betrayal.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
EXPERIENCE THE EXHIBIT
Experience an immersive art installation that leads you on a journey from brokenness to belonging, from hopelessness to hope, from ruin to restoration.
Although there are many ways to tackle the issue of bias, bigotry, and bullying,
this is one school's response.
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
- Galatians 5:14
