In response to Trump’s push for a border barrier! Artist Ron English decided to build his own wall.
The Mexican American 'Welcome Wall' will be a 2000 ft long physical wall along the US/Mexico border, designed by artists and activists to be a conceptual message board for an ongoing discussion about the wall, border, wildlife and immigration issues. A temporary art installation to fuel the resistance against Trump's racist monument.
Ron will start building this spring and the wall will stay up till 2020 Election night. On Election night he will auction the different sections. Part of the proceeds will go to wild life charities, indigenous communities and non-profits.
Ron made original limited pieces of art you can only get through this crowdfunding campaign.
Monarch Butterfly spray paint and oil paint on faux brick - 24" x 24" limited edition of 100. Signed & numbered.
MOTHER SHOULD I BUILD A WALL?
Mother, Should I Build a Wall? (and get Mexico to pay for it) - 11" x 14" Gilcee print with prisma coloured embellishment, signed and numbered.
CERTIFICATE OF SPONSORSHIP
Certificate of sponsorship of the Tex Mex Welcome Wall - print. Signed.
The wall is designed to be build in plywood sections. Three sheets of plywood stacked on top of each other. The design was made so that Art can be created off site and easily shipped by means of a flatbed. Of course we encourage the artists to come to the site and make the art locally.
To cover the cost of material and labour of every 100 foot section of wall we need $15,000. Additionally we can pay the artists a stipend and cover their stay at the border. We are initially starting with 20 artists. $300.000 for a 2000 ft section.
As soon as we have enough money to build one section Ron English will head to the border.
“A wall is the perfect physical and metaphoric gift from a cult leader to his followers. It positions him as the great protector of his chosen people from the unwashed, unenlightened others!” ~Ron English
