Border Doors: Niños en jaulas (Kids in Cages)

Summer 2019 brings the return of Border Doors: Niños en jaulas (Kids in Cages) to The University of New Mexico. Created by students at Sandi Prep, this art exhibit features full-size doors covered in multimedia collages, all intended to raise awareness and educate the public about how US government policies continue to sanction human rights violations against migrants coming to the United States.
