Border Arts Corridor

Border Arts Corridor (BAC) is a group of individuals dedicated to better understanding the complexities of world’s borderlands. We believe that through art and cultural programming social borders may fall and bridges may materialize.

Route from the Gadsden Hotel to the event parking

The northern jaguar travels from a breeding population in northeastern Sonora, defying the US- Mexico border wall to re-establish territory in the American Southwest. The journey, however, is an imperiled one; the jaguars historic travel corridor is fragmented by human activity, border wall expansion, and anti-predator policies. Un-Fragmenting: reuniting culture and ecology in the borderlands is an interdisciplinary intervention that transforms the US - Mexico border wall from barrier to backdrop, projecting jaguar images from the Northern Jaguar Reserve directly onto the rusted iron construct. Through binational cultural engagement, ecological education, and digital projection, ecological artist Lauren Strohacker and collaborators confront the multifaceted ecological effects of the border wall and envision removing barriers to ensure the survival of a wide diversity of species, including the iconic jaguar.

 

Un-Fragmenting / Des-Fragmentando is a temporary public project made in collaboration with the Northern Jaguar Project (Tucson, AZ), Border Arts Corridor (Douglas, AZ), Casa de la Cultura (Agua Prieta, SON), Conciencia y Educación Ambiental (Hermosillo, SON) and with support of U.S. Border Patrol. 

Douglas, AZ / Agua Prieta, SON

Resident artists include an educational component to the projects, working with children in Agua Prieta , SON and Douglas, AZ. This mutually enriching experience provides artists and the community a unique connection and education.
