The artwork I'm holding was created by 6 incredibly brave and beautiful women. They've survived one of the most dark and evil parts of this world --sex trafficking. And all their rescues took place right here in Nashville.
Making art with these ladies was undoubtedly an honor and privilege.
At the benefit luncheon earlier this fall, I loved hearing Allison Krauss' heart for End SlaveryTN-- "it exists to rescue and deliver those whose choices have been taken away from them. "
Their artwork was the centerpiece of every table and looked absolutely stunning. So much so, hardly any were left after the event!
I'm grateful and in awe of times like these when art creates movement and awareness. When it becomes life giving not only the artists, but outwardly extends to others. Thank you, endslaveryTN, for this opportunity.
