This is a multi-media exhibition, that records the journeys and testimonies of undocumented migrants and their families who attempt to cross the U.S.– Mexico border. Traversing remote regions on foot from Central American jungles, through Mexico, and into the Sonoran Desert, this installation tells their stories to raise awareness about the dangers and deaths happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the immigration enforcement strategy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence” (PTD), a policy designed to discourage people from crossing borders near urban ports-of-entry.

Reinventing the Américas: Construct. Erase. Repeat

This exhibition analyzes representations of the Americas, questioning the mythologies and utopian visions that proliferated after the arrival of Europeans to the continents. Featuring artistic interventions by Denilson Baniwa, an Indigenous contemporary artist from the Amazon region of Brazil, and the voices of local community groups, Reinventing the Américas counters the views of European chroniclers, illustrators, and printmakers from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries.   All visitors should reserve an advance timed-entry ticket online

Luis Flores: Because of You, In Spite of You

Luis Flores’s largely autobiographical work functions as an account of emotions and experiences accumulated as a young man within a toxic masculine culture. Transformational events, such as getting married and becoming a father, motivated him to view the world differently. In this exhibition, Flores uses crocheted and bronzed sculptures to create a Monster Rally setup as a metaphor for parental love.   Cost: Adults  – $9, Students, Teachers, and Seniors  – $7, Members –  Free, Sundays – Pay what you…
