The circle has long been associated with many motifs: the feminine, the moon, a medicine wheel or shield. In this new show, San Francisco mixed media artist Geri Montano takes the symbol of the circle in addressing sex trafficking of indigenous women. Using this motif alongside art as a healing component, Traded Moons features over 40 circular panels documentating and illustrating ideas of power, freedom, pain, and hope during a time where over 80% of those involved in human trafficking are women. A portion of works on display were created by sex traffic survivors.
