Her goal, she explained, is to communicate that the many thousands of refugees are individual people: "You can't deny their humanity when you look at their faces." Below right, Zach Weinberg, Oneonta, gets acquainted with one of the decorative masks created by Ian Austin, Oneonta. At left, Charles Bremer, the Otego artist who organized the exhibit, explains how the Martin-Mullen's moveable walls allow him to present each of the artist's selections so they can be appreciated individually.
