Border Doors / Puertas fronterizas

The Albuquerque Museum presents Border Doors / Puertas fronterizas, a bilingual exhibition open October 6, 2024 to May 4, 2025 that showcases the power of education to break down borders and build bridges of understanding.

After meeting immigrants and immigration advocates at the U. S.-- Mexico border, Sandia Preparatory School students created mixed-media collages and paintings on doors based on their experiences. This exhibition explores five major themes related to immigration: Artificial Intelligence; COVID-19 and Essential Workers; Kids in Cages; Family Separation; and the 2019 El Paso Walmart mass shooting that targeted Mexicans and Mexican Americans.

This exhibit was curated by the Albuquerque Museum and Claudio Pérez, Spanish teacher, at Sandia Preparatory School.
