The Art of Life is a large open-air traveling exhibit created by the non-profit organization Justice For All.  Its first public exhibition took place on April 18, 2016 at Colorado State University.  Consisting of nine six-by-twelve-foot panels arranged in a triangle, The Art of Life allows great works of art to be seen in greater detail than is possible in some museum environments.  (For example, the Mona Lisa is behind bulletproof glass at the Louvre.)  

The exhibit presents each work of art to the public to be appreciated for its own sake, but it also makes comment on the subject of each work, making a connection to the hotly-debated topic of abortion.  With The Art of Life, we at Justice For All continue in our passion of creating a different kind of conversation about abortion, one that engages both the heart and the mind.  

This page provides documentation for each of the panels, including links to source material, more information, and commentary.  The panels of The Art of Life were designed to be placed in a triangle with three panels per side, but the order and sequence of the panels may vary from campus to campus.

Here's a brief introduction to The Art of Life through just a few pictures (Spring 2016 Events at CSU and UCLA):
