Along the Migrant Trails:
Documenting the ‘Decade of Death’ on the Arizona/Mexico Border
January 16th – May 30th, 2018
Michael Klahr Center Atrium
Opening Event February 9, 5pm-7pm
Along the Migrant Trails is an exhibition of items left behind by migrants traveling north along Arizona/Mexico desert trails and collected by Deborah McCullough, artist and member of the Tucson Samaritans humanitarian aid group. These mundane artifacts and the stories, art, photographs, and maps that contextualize them help to shed light on the harsh realities of migration along the United States’ southwestern border.
Along the Migrant Trails is presented as a partnership between the HHRC, the Wilson Center at UMaine, the Tucson Samaritans, and especially Sara Lowden and Deborah McCullough.
An opening event for Along the Migrant Trails will take place on Friday, February 9, from 5pm to 7pm, with a special program featuring Sara Lowden at 5:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.
