Event Details

 “Discarded jeans cut into the shape of footprints. Embroidered blessings on handkerchiefs faded from use and the desert sun. Plastic buttons and metal rivets that punctuate long lists of the dead.” – Arizona Daily Star

Join Arizona Historical Society and Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for a private viewing of Los Desconocidos: The Migrant Quilt Project before it moves to its new home and enjoy complimentary admission to the entire Arizona History Museum.  Founded in Tucson in the mid-2000s, The Migrant Quilt Project memorializes the stories of migrants who died seeking refuge in the United States. It is a collaborative effort between artists, quiltmakers, and activists to document the names and number of lives lost each year in the deserts of the borderlands. The quilts are created to encourage compassion and inspire support for humane changes in border policies.

When: Tuesday, February 28th from 3 to 5 pm (the exhibit leaves on the 29th!)

Where: Arizona History Museum, 949 E 2nd St, Tucson (free parking in garage off Euclid/2nd St, stay to the right and park where it says Arizona History Museum)
