Honorable Mention
Megan Wachs

In this charcoal drawing for "Pretends to Be Free," I chose a brass scale to represent how cash crops were worth the same amount as the slaves who worked them. I chose the faces of the slaves in this drawing to be blurred because of the importance of the slaves to their masters. The slave owners of that time did not see slaves as real people or having a real identity. The top of the scale is also representative of the slave owners. The arms of the scale and the knob at the top are drawn to resemble a human. Both arms are under control of the cash crops and the slaves. Fortunately for the slaves, however, they are able to escape. The slave family in this drawing is an interpretation of the ten-year-old girl who was "stolen" by her mother and ran away with her father and infant brother.
