A History of Walls: The Borders We Build
Opens March 5, 2020
March 5 - May 9, 2020
This traveling exhibit, produced by Overland Exhibits, explores four significant historic walls built by nation-states. From the Israel/West Bank Barrier to the Great Wall of China, from the Berlin Wall to the wall along the US-Mexico border, A History of Walls looks at the history of and meaning behind these imposing infrastructural elements.
Presented in both English and Spanish, A History of Walls invites visitors to ask these questions:
- What were/are these walls meant do?
- What did they mean in the beginning, and what do we understand them to mean now?
- How have people interacted with these walls?
- What roles will walls play in our shared future?
