NOW: Art exhibit honors Mexico’s missing students and political prisoners

Art can be political and it can challenge. That’s the case of a temporary exhibit on display at Latino Arts in Milwaukee.

Alberto Villalobos is a musician and artist hoping to bring attention to the story of 40 students who went missing in Mexico in 2014. They were allegedly taken into custody by local police colluding with organized crime.

The exhibit is a collection of handmade clay masks that honor the memory of the disappeared students from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero as well as recognize the thousands of missing journalists, activists, and political prisoners in Mexico.
