Crossing Over: The Migrant Quilt Project

Crossing Over: The Migrant Quilt Project

Presented by Indiana Interchurch Center at Indiana Interchurch Center

The Indiana Interchurch Center and Gallery is privileged to host an exhibition of the Migrant Quilt Project. The project began when Jody
Ipsen learned that a record 282 people died while trying to cross the border in the Tucson Sector between 2004 and 2005. She has worked individually and with others to document every person who died in the Tucson sector of the desert since the year 2000. “Los Desconosidos”, the unknown ones, along with those whose names are known, are listed on a quilt each year.

Each year individuals from churches and other organizations travel to Arizona and the border for an immersion experience at The Good Shepherd UCC.

The exhibit may be seen August 5 – September 26 at the IIC Gallery, 9 am – 5 pm, Monday – Friday

Please contact 317 – 923 – 3617 for more information.
