Tribute to the Disappeared is an art project in honor of the disappeared in Mexico -from the 43 students in Ayotzinapa to the women of Juarez- and other victims of violence and injustice the world over. The project was founded in November 2014. Over 250 international artists, as well as art/community organizations and collectives have participated. Until now, the works have been displayed online, primarily through our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tributetothedisappeared?ref=aymt_homepage_panel. They can also be seen on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tributetothedisappeared/

To honor the students from Ayotzinapa one year after their disappearance in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico, we are working to put on a physical exhibition of the artworks in New York City on September 26, 2015. Ayotzinapa vive, la lucha sigue!
