  1. A History of Walls: The Borders We Build

    June 12, 2021 - August 14, 2021 @ Irving Archives and Museum

    “A History of Walls” features a closer look at four historically significant walls: the Great Wall of China, the Berlin Wall, the Israel/West Bank Barrier, and the US/Mexico Border Wall.

    Each wall is examined as a historical, political, and cultural phenomenon. The exhibit puts a special focus on the lives of people affected by these imposing and oftentimes dangerous structures. Visitors will find themselves challenged to consider the role of walls in their lives, whether those walls are far away or right next door.
