Understanding the Impact of Damage
Every artwork at unSCruz represents a piece of the artist’s soul and vision. Damaging or defacing these creations can have profound emotional and financial consequences for the artists involved. Furthermore, art is not just a physical object; it is an expression of emotions, experiences, and ideas. Disregarding the sanctity of the artists’ efforts to freely and purely express themselves and their creativity undermines the sense of community and shared appreciation that unSCruz aims to cultivate.

Respecting other people’s art is not only an ethical responsibility but also an integral part of building a harmonious community. By treating the artwork at unSCruz with care, we show our commitment to creating and maintaining an environment where creativity thrives. This includes refraining from touching, moving, or altering artworks without the artist’s explicit permission. It is essential to recognize that art, regardless of its form, holds value and deserves reverence.
Civic Responsibility: We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
