Historical Context:
This artwork was created by an 8th grader at Linden Charter School in Flint, Michigan. "There is something so emotional, jarring, and honest about the artwork submitted by these middle schoolers. The bold use of color, the prevalence of water bottles, the recurring use of the word “help” and the slogan Flint Lives Matter all leave a lasting impression. This artwork helps tell their stories, and the stories of their hometown." - Stephanie Smedley
