All Day From Root to Sky: Sachiko Akiyama (Multi-Day Event)
Click here to RSVP

Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: April 5–May 19
 
Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales.  Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

With the altering terrain of cyberspace, criminal activity has been greatly impacted. Law enforcement and other key stakeholders face new challenges with addressing this crime. However, technology provides significant avenues to discovering and identifying human trafficking. From a law enforcement perspective, how has technology changed the scope of criminal activity?
