Mary Mihelic, Running Girls.

At 16, when Greta Thurnberg sailed the Atlantic on Malizia II, she was the same age that many of the schoolgirls were when they were kidnapped.  This artwork references the courage of all these teenage girls, climate change, the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, and Christianity being under attack -- from itself.  Detail below.
