“Borrando la Frontera” is a project by artist Ana Teresa Fernandez, who collaborated with Border/Arte–a collective of Arizona-based artists and culture workers who work to bring social issues to the forefront through artistic initiatives–to change the aesthetic, and thus impact, of the wall separating Baja California, Sonora, and Ciudad Juarez.

This is not the first time the Mexican-born artist took to the fence with paint. In 2011 she did her first performance of “Borrando la Frontera,” where she painted a 50-foot segment of the wall while wearing a black cocktail dress and pumps. The artist decided to go back to the wall on April 9 after being inundated with messages from Juarez citizens eager to see their portion of the border erased as well, said Fernandez in a previous interview with the San Francisco Weekly, where she is now a resident.
