Artists’ Illustrations as Reaction to Refugee Ban

Some creative artists have dealt with such a state of affairs through their arts in response to that refugee ban. It clearly shows that the motif of artists’ expressions is that of compassion.

One of most iconic and poignant illustrations of this issue is by Jamie Hu. Her digital piece features a heartfelt embrace between Lady Liberty and a young woman in a hijab.

Hu’s art expressions speak no words as they are not that important. Still, the worry is palpable through the Statue of Liberty’s eyes as she comforts the woman. “You belong” is a common refrain of these images, along with the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of America.
