[Photo Story] HUB-Robeson Galleries: Hostile Terrain 94

The HUB-Roberson Galleries is currently showcasing Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94), an art project meant to display the lost lives of migrants who attempted to cross the Arizona border.

HT94 was organized by The Undocumented Migration Project. Its goal is to raise awareness for the 3,200 lives that have been lost crossing the Arizona border since the 1994 immigration enforcement strategy “Prevention through Deterrence.”

Hostile Terrain 94 is a participatory project taking place simultaneously in 150 cities globally.

Volunteers fill out toe tags that each represents a migrant who has died. White tags represent an identified migrant, while orange tags represent an unnamed, unidentified migrant.

Those interested in learning more can register to attend “Migrant Stories, featuring Andrea Thome.” Thome’s webinar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on October 13 and will feature the art projects: Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes) and Hostile Terrain 94.
