Begins a Scar is an art project I created for my galleries to exhibit. The work depicts the hurtful names and labels that are put on people daily. With the new Trump administration came a new breed of person in America that felt they have the right to use these racist slurs and labels to demean anyone that was not WASP. These labels are hurtful to the receiver to the point it breaks down their confidence and moral and often leads to suicide. The Installation was also accompanied by a poem from Poet Lorient, Patricia Smith.
