In You We Trust is a project created by Jen Rose and Marian Lefeld to raise awareness of human trafficking in Dallas. Over two-hundred volunteers in the Dallas community worked to create 2,000 six-inch golden coins to represent the 2,000 children sold on the streets of Dallas each year.

The Blood of Heroes Never Dies

This installation was inspired by Paul Cummings's work in England to create one poppy for each Brittish soldier killed in World War One. History Professor, Clive Seigle and Jen Rose used the international symbol of the poppy to represent each solider killed from Texas in WWI; 5,171 poppies in all. The installation was installed at Richland College and at the courthouse lawn in Georgetown Texas. The poppies were sold and $25,000 was raised for Puppies Behind Bars, an organization which trains service animals for wounded soldiers. For more on this project watch this 13-minute video.
