The Bus Sculpture
The Association of Mexicans in North Carolina (AMEXCAN) in collaboration with artist Sally Jacobs through a generous grant from the Z. Smith Reynolds foundation are pleased to announce the completion of the Bus Sculpture.
This grant made possible the inclusive public Bus Sculpture. The public artwork will lift up the story of a large, marginalized group: the Latino migrant farmworker community. This mobile and "living" Bus Sculpture will encourage forms of narratives (through art, letters, audio recordings, and other forms of expression) to help bridge the isolated farmworker community with the greater community in which they live.
