Artifacts of Human Trafficking

There are just some things we don’t talk about…

Wilshire Baptist Church presents, 

Artifacts of Human Trafficking  

And you’re so numb by that point, no, not even numb-that’s not the right word, you’re gone, you’re soulless.  They own you, but not just your body, they own who you are, the deepest parts of you. –Anonymous

We invite you to shine a light into the darkness through art as we explore the pervasive sex trafficking industry in the United States through Artifacts of Human Trafficking, an installation created by Austin artist, Amie Stone King, with accompanying juried, 2-D mixed media works from artists around the world based on the themes of desperation, isolation and deceit.

Artifacts opens on April 3, 2018, and runs until May 7, 2018. 
Gallery hours are Monday-Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

The show will then travel to Rapha House in Joplin, Mo.
