Marginalized Cage (student art)

Marginalized Cage, art by Estephanie Guzman, shows a young woman gripping long hair and a key. There is a box with a keyhole in the corner of the picture

I learned marginalized communities are being restricted in society due to their physical identity. My image, a marginalized figure, trapped within their own hair, they strive to break the societal norms, symbolized by the cage. Their ultimate goal is to use their empowering key to unlock the glass case, cut off the strands that have trapped them for generations, and finally be unrestricted.
