Borderland Youth



Karen Rangel, a ninth-grader at Franco Middle School in Presidio, took this picture while peering through her classroom window. It’s part of her work with Borderland Youth, a participatory social art project based at Texas State University. The project works with young people living along the U.S.-Mexico border to creatively reflect on the cross-cultural experiences of the region.
