Guest curator George Rivera, Ph.D., from the department of art & art history at the University of Colorado at Boulder, has gathered the work of Chicano (Mexican American), Argentine, Chilean, Colombian, Mexican and Colorado-based artists to examine the social reality of immigration inside and outside of the United States.

“ASLD provides exhibitions to examine current trends and issues in our local and global community,” said Rachel Basye, executive director of ASLD. “The artworks featured in ‘Border: Both Sides Now’ reflect the lived experiences of artists whose family, friends and community members have been impacted by borders. We hope this art inspires conversation and encourages broader understanding of a complex and timely issue.”
