“Bought & Sold: Voices of Human Trafficking,” an exhibit now on display in the MSU College of Law’s fourth floor gallery, speaks to the experiences and suffering of the millions of men, women and children caught up in slavery’s web.

The exhibit asks the public to consider the plight from the perspective of those affected. Looking outward through the victims’ eyes, the images challenge us to imagine the daily horrors, tedium, desperation and ambiguities of their lives — and to take action.

The artist, Kay Chernush, is an award-winning photographer with more than 30 years experience in commercial and fine art photography.

This event is part of MSU’s yearlong community conversation on civil rights and human rights, Project 60/50.

This exhibition is on display until March 30, and will be open to the public during regular school hours.

On March 17 there will be an artist meet and greet followed by a public lecture. The meet and greet will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the College of Law’s fourth floor atrium. The lecture, titled 
“About Human Trafficking: A Photographer at the Intersection of Art & Human Rights,” will take place at 4 p.m. on the same day in the College of Law’s third floor boardroom.
