A Race for Equality by Benji James Hill
Size: 8.5 x 11
Artist Statement: My picture of A Free World is through the eyes of children, whose love is innocent and pure, without judgment. This mindset can be used in any, and every facet of life, to advance our technology, and advance our humanity, to live all life as we love our own, to fight for what we want, and to cherish what we have an entire human “race” free quality, a true, free world.
Image Description: A pencil drawing of three children who appear to be sitting outside. All three children are laughing and smiling with the wispy grass below them. The child to the far left is a young girl with a fair complexion and straight, blonde hair. She is sitting in the grass with her knees towards her chest. She is wearing a white shirt and jeans with the bottom rolled up. The girl is laughing with her mouth open and eyes shut while facing the direction of the other two children. The child in the middle is another young girl with a slightly darker complexion and black, curly hair. She is wearing a striped shirt with overalls. She is standing up but slightly crouched over from laughing so hard. She has her hands on her knees and is looking toward the direction of the viewer. She has a large grin on her face with squinched eyes. The third child present in the drawing is on the far right. The child is a young boy of medium complexion and slightly dark, curly hair. He also has a large grin on his face and squinched eyes, looking toward the direction of the viewer. The boy is wearing a white t-shirt with an open flannel on top and jeans with socks and high-top sneakers. The boys hands are together in front of him, holding what appears to be something small in nature such as a seed or blade of grass. Behind all three children are trees and bushes in the background.
