The installation “Gracias! Thank You For Your Struggles” emerged from a desire both to honor the struggles of families and individuals that are often unseen and to thank and celebrate all who move through these challnges everyday to make a better life. Struggle, determination and celebration filled the project from its very beginning to its opening today.
