Nine months after a grand jury concluded that the number of babies and women who died in Kermit Gosnell’s women’s health services clinic is “literally incalculable,” a pair of guerilla artists sent out invitations to a renegade art installation titled Regard, to be showcased by lights tonight at the former site.
“It’s important to honor people were murdered in this place,” says Jane. “I think it’s time to … take a moment to say we honor you. We see you.”
The artists say they wrote a mission statement to try to prevent their work from being co-opted by the anti-choice movement.
“I hope people come away from the work with the understanding that this piece was conceived with an eye toward compassion, rather than judgment,” says Jane.
