Wallace was selected to create the local exhibition. Her thoughts turned to the students she teaches in Curley School’s Las Artes GED Program and to the students at Tohono O’odham High School, where her boyfriend teaches.
The finished exhibition features a picture of each student accompanied by his or her art. Pieces range from skulls and crosses dotting the land, representing the many deaths of people trying to cross, to stop signs in both English and Spanish. A rusty chain-link fence is placed over small papers with the students’ statements about the border.
