THE EXHIBIT
EXPERIENCE

Transcendients: Heroes at Borders honors individuals who advocate and fight for those who face discrimination, prejudice, and inequality at borders both physical and abstract. Through video projections on mist, photographic weavings, and audience participation, visitors to this multimedia exhibition are invited to learn about, reflect on, and celebrate heroes in Los Angeles, across the nation, and within their own lives.

The heroes featured in the exhibition—some well-known but most unsung—were identified through extensive outreach to communities and neighborhoods throughout L.A. and beyond.
