A thousand artists are queued up to build the Welcome Wall, an art installation wall running the length of the US/Mexico border. The first section of the Wall was unveiled today in Mission, Texas, at the National Butterfly Center, painted by eight artists, including organizer/creator and world-renowned artist Ron English, a New York-based Texas native.
“The wall is being built NOW, but not by Trump, and Mexico is paying for it, not American taxpayers. And it really is beautiful. It’s environmentally neutral, and we hope it becomes a global tourist attraction and national treasure. Our wall is a welcome, not a rebuff. Our wall has doors and climbing rocks!”
The first section of the Welcome Wall was funded by an indiegogo campaign. Subsequent sections will be funded by the Mexican government, which has also agreed to provide contractor and construction support for the art installation to run from Texas to California along the US/Mexico border.
