🇺🇦In a glowing beacon of support for Ukraine, the City of El Paso is illuminating the El Paso International Airport and the public art on I-10 and Airway in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. This will continue through the end of March in support of Ukraine and its people as they battle a Russian invasion.

The City joins many other governments, organizations, and entities across the country in a show of solidarity.

While El Paso and Ukraine are more than 6,300 miles apart, the City wishes to shine a light on the humanitarian crisis being experienced by the people of Ukraine. The lighting also offers an opportunity for individuals to take a moment to reflect on the dire situation and consider how each person might be able to show support by either donating to a local agency in honor of Ukraine or donating directly to help those impacted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

To learn how to help Ukraine and donate, visit https://redcross.org.ua/donate/.

"Blurred Boundaries" is the public art component for the City of Paso's Chamizal Community Center. The artwork highlights the rich history of the neighborhood--including as the setting for resolution of US-Mexico disputes during the last century under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. Local artist Jesus Cimi Alvarado's initial mural was translated into 1,720 square feet of glass panels that are illuminated at night crowning the facility.

Did you know?
Yesterday, City of El Paso Public Art Program hosted the reception following the unveiling of "Treacherous Crossing", in honor of the soldiers of the Men of Company E at the El Paso Museum of History. Attendees were able to view our “El Paso’s Homegrown: World War II” exhibition exploring the impact of WWII on the Borderland.

Through a combination of our collection and community contributions, “El Paso’s Homegrown” covers Company E, the European and Pacific theatres of the war, the Bracero program, the home efforts of women, the contributions of Indigenous tribes, Japanese internment, and Tom Lea’s work as a war correspondent.

This exhibit is on display through August 28, 2022.

...

“El Paso’s Homegrown” is presented with support from the El Paso Museum of History Foundation, the Tom Lea Institute, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department - City of El Paso.
“These guys proved they were just as American as anybody else, and many died serving this country.” – Martin Luna, son of 1st Sgt. Lorenzo M. Luna of Company E, whose name was not originally included in a new memorial being unveiled Thursday.

In process: "The Insurmountable Task" is a new, City of El Paso Public Art Program memorial funded through the planned Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC). It will honor the brave sacrifice of the Men of Company E, the only Mexican-American infantry unit that fought in WWII. The group was composed of 250 soldiers from across Texas, including 124 from El Paso. “This was a true event of heroism as a part of these young kids that came from Bowie, Cathedral, maybe one El Paso High another group and some were even from Mexico,” said selected artist, El Paso Sculptor Julio Sanchez De Alba. The finished piece will feature bronze figures 1.5 times life size depicted as they cross the Rapido River in Italy. Those who survived this dangerous mission would go on to help liberate Rome.
