The exhibition Border Cantos: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo has sparked conversations about immigration and identity. Forty-one organizations from San Francisco to Watsonville, California, joined with SJMA to present programs that include theater, film, panel discussions, and exhibitions.

SJMA and partners celebrate this collaboration in a dynamic evening that will feature a performance by Guillermo Galindo and showcase many other related programs.
