NOV 4th 2016  Tucson Weekly Review: 
View exhibition upstairs, downstairs and main lobby of The Historic Y, 738 N 5th Avenue, Tucson
 Thursday, October 20, 7pm – Opening reception, meet & greet with the artists. Author and photographer Krista Schlyer will show images and read from her National Outdoor Book Award-winning Continental Divide: Wildlife, People and the Border Wall.
 Monday, October 24, 7pm – Multi-talented visual artist Raechel Running shares the people who have influenced her lens on borderlands unity rather than separation. Her portraits and vivid images show the Native peoples of the region, archeologists, Mata Ortiz potters, horse traditions and contemporary cultural connections to the landscape all united by the histories and geography. Her lens weaves Grand Canyon to Copper Canyon showing us how we are connected in stories and symbols before the political boundary of the wall.
Raechel's border work is in the permanent collection at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France and her work and collected instruments of the Raramuri musicians of Copper Canyon are on permanent display at Musical Instrument Museum Collection in Scottsdale, AZ.
 Thursday, October 27, 7pm – Much of Khaled Jarrar’s film, sculpture and public artwork focuses on the imposing, concrete separation barrier between his home community of Ramallah and Jerusalem: He sculpted a volleyball from a piece of it, he created a visual crack in it, and he painted a rainbow on it. Khaled will share his experiences making art from barriers in his homeland, as well as on the U.S.-Mexico border.
 Thursday, November 3, 7pm – National Geographic Creative photographer Bill Hatcher is best known for stunning nature photography and thrilling adventure shots. Bill has spent much of his personal and professional life in borderlands around the world, and will showcase some of his best works from national parks and wild areas along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Refreshments provided. A $10 donation is suggested (nobody will be turned away), proceeds benefit the Borderlands program of the Sierra Club Grand Canyon Chapter.
The exhibit will be on display to the public October 20 through December 14, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. Free.
