On The Wall is a dynamic exhibition comprised of both Latino and Asian Pacific Islander emerging artists. Through the mediums of spray paint, installation and video,the featured artists examine the current issues of the immigration debate, such as shifting identities, cultural ownership and community building. On The Wall is the last exhibition of the year-long series, PICTURING IMMIGRATION,which included exhibitions and public events examining immigration from a variety of perspectives.

The exhibition will feature a large-scale installation and public billboard by the Trust Your Struggle collective, a group of visual artists and educators, based in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. The group is dedicated to social justice through art and works in conjunction with several other collectives, producing engaging exhibits and community events.

This presentation at Galería culminates the 2008 Trust Your Hustle Mural Tour, which started in July in Brooklyn, New York and has traveled until now through Atlanta, New Orleans, Austin, Flagstaff,Phoenix, and Los Angeles.

For the exhibit at Galería de la Raza,the Trust Your Struggle group will join forces with multi talented video artists selected by Kearny St. Workshop, creating a vibrant venue of art, thought, and cross-cultural community activism.
