The wall, the anti-migrant militaristic policies along border states, and the Obama administration’s all out war on immigrants is like a knife cutting communities, indigenous people, families and wildlife. The wall is inflaming hatred and contributing to an atmosphere of vigilantism and oppression. Thirty artists respond with imagery from a variety of viewpoints. This touring exhibition is heading to cities around the country. (Piece to the right by Calixto Robles)
