For years the United States’ border with Mexico has dominated national conversation. For residents of Imperial County, the border and Border Wall are a regular and active part of our daily landscape. From its role in our local economies, to travel and tourism, and cultural exchange, the reality of the border and all that comes with it are ever-present, changing with us as we ourselves grow. For years, Calexico native and local artist Jimmy Dorantes has captured that local perspective on this national conversation through his camera lense. Now those stories can be seen in his first exhibit series, Life Along The Border -- Imperial Valley’s first nationally-traveling exhibit!
