Crisis at Lincoln Hills

Yesterday evening I had the privilege of talking to Enrique Violetti, one of Philo’s feat. artists based out of Milwaukee, we discussed what social issues were most pressing to him. These conversations  occur monthly with all of our artists in an attempt to brainstorm original works that bring awareness to social causes. Enrique brought to Philo’s attention the Lincoln Hills School for Boys and Copper Lake School for Girls, which share a campus 30 miles north of Wausau. They have been under investigation for human rights abuses for about two years already but recently more action is starting to take place.  Below are a couple articles elaborating on this topic further. In addition, look for Enrique’s piece in our upcoming Newsletter as it will tell the story also. In the meantime, #StayPensive
