BY CHRISTIAN SARKAR – Renowned U.S. Artist Ron English has started a protest wall project down at the border with Mexico. In response to Trump’s push for a border barrier, he’s decided to build his own wall – a “Welcome Wall.”
The Mexican American “Welcome Wall” will be a 2000 ft long physical wall along the US/Mexico border, designed by artists and activists to be a conceptual message board for an ongoing discussion about the wall, border, wildlife and immigration issues. It’s a temporary art installation to fuel the resistance against Trump’s racist monument of division.
Here are a few questions – and answers – from the artist – to help you get into the swing of things.
Why build this Wall?
In response to Trump’s excessive push for a border barrier, artist Ron English decided to build his own alternative wall. A bulletin board for artists and political activists to continue the discussion about immigration, wild life and the impact that the border barrier has on it.
How long will the wall stay up?
The Wall will stay up until election night 2020! Then it will go up for auction.
How can I help?
You can do more than donating. Spread the word!
I have border property on the Mexican border. Do you want to come build this in my back yard?
Yes!!!!! Contact us immediately!
I am really good at building walls on the Mexico border, can I help?
But of course! Contact us immediately and we will make it happen!
What will happen with the Welcome Wall Art after the 2020 Elections?
The art will be auctioned. Proceeds will go to local charities.
Why have the butterfly wings in the shape of South America?
We are building a wall to keep the illegal South American butterflies out! Joking of course. Border construction is crossing the natural habitat of a lot of different wild life, including the National Butterfly Center. Part of proceeds will go to wildlife charities.
