From the artist:

Show: No Border Wall is a visual story of the vibrancy and color of Mexico. The frames were built by hand to echo this theme. This collection of photos is a story of my first trip to Mexico. While there, President Trump declared a national emergency at the border and as I sat, and ate the most delicious food and talked with the most generous local people I could see how untrue that declaration was and still is. I decided to show Mexico as soft, as colorful, and as absolutely beautiful as I could. These photos are my small attempt at that.

There will also be projected photos of the people of Mexico that I met and talked with. These will play alongside the hanging photos. I hope you will join me August 29th to drink, celebrate and discuss the theme and story behind the exhibition.
