Art Exhibit: Ladders and Walls

new exhibition at Austin College from artist/activist Scott Nicol, "Ladders and Walls," consists of 14 ladders migrants have used in attempts to enter the United States, Michael Marks reports for The Texas Standard. "There are people who are trying to survive and we need to see what we, as a nation, can do to help them, not try to militarize the border, not destroy the environment along the border, not do damage to border communities, but think of it rationally and compassionately and address it in that manner," Nicol said of the project. 

“Ladders and Walls” is on display at Austin College from October 22 through December 10 in Dennis Gallery of Forster Art Complex. The exhibition of photographs and sculptures related to the South Texas border wall is presented by the Austin College Department of Art and Art History. The gallery is normally open by appointment only by calling 903.813.2283.

From Scott Nicol on Twitter
My Ladders and Walls exhibition is up at Austin College, and will be up through December. Had great discussions about the impacts of border militarization with engaged students today, and looking forward to Saturday's opening reception.
