Mexican-American artist Erika Harrsch first exhibited her project Under the Same Sky… We Dream in El Paso (2017) just as regulations became more stringent for those seeking asylum and a better life in the United States. Children of refugees and undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, entered the U.S. with hope for full citizenship but now face an uncertain future. This multi-media installation is comprised of imagery, music, text, and furnishings that reference the circumstances faced by immigrants and refugees subject to the DREAM Act.

Eyes On: Erika Harrsch is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is presented with the generous support of Vicki and Kent Logan, the donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, Comcast Spotlight, and The Denver Post.
