A big Thank You to all participating artists who let me into your studios, homes, and lives !! It was an enormously interesting journey and your kindness and generosity was making me feel very much at home anywhere I went.
I am hoping to be able to continue the work and fill this website with many more talents of all disciplines from the US Mexican border in the future.
Thank you all,
Stefan Falke, Brooklyn, April 2013.
