US/Mexican Border in Texas, 2018

In August, Janet spent 10 days on the US/Mexican Border. The trip follows her 2014 research trip to Arizona that resulted in my installation Fences & Neighbors. Janet participated in a 5 day Border Awareness Experience in El Paso with Annunciation House, a nonprofit, volunteer organization that has been working with migrants and refugees since the 1970’s. The group lived in a house that also welcomes migrants. Annunciation House showed us sites key to the migrant experience in El Paso. Then she spent 5 days driving from El Paso to Brownsville, looking at the border, the fences, the Rio Grande. Crossing back and forth into Mexico thru the US Points of Entry.
