Mexicali: Day Two

For night two of our Zinefest  Internacional event was set at Mexicali Rose just under a mile away from the U.S. border. We were given the grand tour by our host, Marco Vera. We were given an oral history of how this place has been a corner stone of the community. You could feel the weight of the past and what an honor it was to hold our art exchange from both countries here.
