Human Rights Day 2010 on 10 December recognizes the work of human rights defenders worldwide who act to end discrimination.

Acting alone or in groups within their communities, every day human rights defenders work to end discrimination by campaigning for equitable and effective laws, reporting and investigating human rights violations and supporting victims.

While some human rights defenders are internationally renowned, many remain anonymous and undertake their work often at great personal risk to themselves and their families.”

“Invisible Frontier” – an Installation by Herron MFA student Rogelio Gutierrez

November 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Herron School of Art and Design MFA student artist¬†Rogelio Gutierrez has set up an installation exhibition at the Campus Center Tunnel, titled Invisible Frontier. The exhibition consists of 40 “road signs” which is designed to simulate an invisible frontier shared by the United States of America and Mexico. In light of anti-immigrant legislation being

proposed across the country by many states, the installation invites members of the larger Indianapolis community to the IUPUI campus to see the visual and textual representations of issues faced by immigrant populations. The art exhibit uses one end of the tunnel, Cavanaugh Hall, as its stand-in for Mexico, and the Campus Center as the United States.

This exhibit will be up for viewing by the public beginning today, Monday, November 29th through Thursday, December 2nd. The tunnel is accessible from the hours of 7:00AM until 9:00PM.

In addition to the exhibit, the Campus Center will be holding an Immigration Symposium on Thursday, December 2nd starting at 11:00AM until 2:00PM.
