At the Noche Navideña, we wrote prayers for hope, peace, joy, and love. The prayer stars were hung in Café Justo y Mas during Christmastide.

NOVEMBER 2019:  ART AS RESISTANCE AND HOPE
Painting a mural on the border wall

We painted birds and flowers from the nations represented by people who wait along the wall as they seek asylum in the United States. Images now adorning the wall’s southern side include the dahlia from Mexico, plumeria from Nicaragua, the scarlet macaw from Honduras, the resplendent quetzal of Guatemala, chamomile from Russia, and the sunflower from Ukraine.
