RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Confiscated bibles in “El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)” by Tom Kiefer
We are in a Samaritan moment when artists are naming the brokenness and transforming it into beauty. One such artist is Arizona-based Tom Kiefer. He is a fine art photographer and graphic designer who retrieved the confiscated belongings of South American migrants that our Custom’s officials tossed into the trash. Kiefer then organized and photographed them. Combining his twin skills as graphic designer and photographer, Kiefer has created a snapshot of our American struggle with immigration to symbolize our collective responsibility. That's why Tom Kiefer's “El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)” is our art of the week.
