Tom Kiefer’s “El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)” | ArtPrize Nine Top 20
Six New Testaments, pulled from the trash and photographed on a bandana, all once belonged to migrants who came to America filled with hope (Hebrews 6:19). "El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)" by Tom Kiefer is one in a collection of 100+ photographs reflecting the humiliating treatment of migrants by U.S. border officials. Kiefer makes us witnesses to the confiscation and disposal of their personal property including rosaries and Bibles. This past week at Artprize (Ending October 8), "El Sueño Americano (The American Dream)" was included in both the Alpha Omega Arts Top 20 and ArtPrize jurors Top 20. Find out the Public Vote Final 20 today at 1pm.
