Inside Out

The faces of immigration reform can be seen on the outside of a downtown Roanoke building.

Beverly Amsler reports from downtown Roanoke, at the old Heironimus building on South Jefferson Street.

Three foot high photos of men, women, boys and girls, are glued onto the wall in nice, neat rows.  It’s part of the Inside Out 11M Public Art Project.  The 11 M stands for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U. S. 

The group is traveling the country,-members stopped in Richmond in July-trying to start a dialogue about immigration reform.
 
The pictures were  transferred electronically to the traveling photobooth bus parked nearby and in just a few minutes the oversized portrait came out of a slit in the side.

The photos will remain on display for three weeks. Amsler
