Paintings bring awareness of human trafficking

Posted: Updated:

A traveling art exhibit that raises awareness of sex trafficking stopped in Billings Wednesday night at the Yellowstone Art Museum.

The Freedom 58 Project brought 14 paintings from its Faces of Freedom collection. The project stated artists used their unique ability to observe people and create dignity, hope and beauty amidst brokenness in the world.

"This shows the hope and the dignity that even the common person can relate to and invites people to a state of empathy of what it means to be human but also what happens during human trafficking and the process of restoration," said Alyssa Wilson, Freedom 58 Project art director.  

As part of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, the Faces of Freedom exhibit will go on display in Kalispell on Saturday and in Missoula on Sunday.
