Art Against the Wall, Brownsville, Texas


Funerary Wreath Target  (10′ x’10’ x 8″), 2009
I made this large-scale funerary wreath to address all of the loss that takes place at the U.S. Mexico Border. It is constructed out of materials traditionally used for funerary wreaths in the Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Mexico area. The Wreath Target was placed on the wall in Alice Wilson Hope Park in Brownsville, Texas on February 26. Hope Park is also marked with an historical marker as the beginning of the Chisholm Trail and is an overlook for the Gateway International Bridge.

The two photos above are of Hope Park before the Border Fence was built.
