El Sueño Americano / The American Dream

    The Saint Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA) and the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art (MOCRA) currently have on view two works by photographer Tom Kiefer. Kiefer uses a blend of fine art and documentary photography to capture items once belonged to migrants and were discarded by the United States border patrol in Arizona. Kiefer worked as a janitor there for many years and collected the items. He claims this was his “destiny” to collect and capture these personal items.
