Kate Renee’s painting “Liberty and Justice for All,” features the Statue of Liberty is portrayed as a Muslim woman. The artwork is a response to the current political climate of America. The current political decisions under President Trump, including the travel ban, the police brutalities, the elimination of the DACA program and the events that took place in South Carolina are all alarming. These events have really brought racism to the forefront and continue to perpetuate fear and divide our country. This piece is a reminder that our country is built on a foundation of immigrants, and we have pledged that everyone deserves liberty and justice.
