TUCSON -- The Third Annual Rasquacho Art Show, a fundraiser for the video collective Pan Left Productions, was held at the Splinter Brothers and Sisters Warehouse on Saturday night. A video was shown of the work of the Indigenous Alliance Without Borders, revealing how U.S. borders dissected Indigenous communities and resulted in border agents now harassing and abusing Indigenous Peoples in their homelands. Artwork on display included the work of Pancho Medina, Gail Contreras, Tanya Alvarez, Valarie James, Raquel Mogollon, and Barbara Tesso.
