The Ragdoll Project

I made this doll as a contribution to the Ragdoll Project, which is also an art exhibit featuring works of the members of the Philadelphia chapter of Women's Caucus for Art to raise awareness around the issue of Human Trafficking - a $30 billion industry and the majority of these girls are under the age of 18 -- some as young as 12 or 13 years old.

Opening Reception for the Ragdoll Project is happening THIS FRIDAY, April 6, 2012, 6-9pm at F&N GALLERY, 2007 Frankford Ave.

A selection of dolls will be auctioned off at the opening reception and WCA artwork will be available for purchase. Proceeds will be donated to Dawn's Place, a local shelter that supports rescued victims of trafficking.
