All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho - through October 16

All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho - through October 16

A Project by Borderland Collective. All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho is a collaboration between students and staff from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. Participants curated photos from their family albums, made new photographs, and recorded their oral histories. The resulting exhibition creates a uniquely personal connection between the viewer and the families and serves as an acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworkers from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.

The exhibition was created by Borderland Collective’s Mark Menjivar and Jason Reed with CAMP staff and students including Luz Iniguez, Natalia Esquivel Silva, Orfil Olmos, Gabriela Ruiz, Moises Mendez, and Alondra Torres.

In the adjacent gallery, this contemporary exhibition is complemented by a selection of archival items from the Washington State Historical Society’s collections exploring the political and economic histories of land and labor in the region.

When the All The Sacrifices You Have Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho ends, the family photographs and oral histories will be added to the WSHS permanent collections, preserving these meaningful histories for generations to come.
