Tag: Whose Values

Get young people thinking about their lives and current topics of social justice, advocacy, gender, race, and identity. After examining several works by Barbara Kruger, participants select a tag with one of the questions printed on it, craft a response on the other side of the card, and then add their card to an installation designed to attract the attention of others.
