All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los sacrificios que has hecho is a collaboration between undergraduate students and staff members from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington (UW) and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. 

Borderland Collective artists Mark Menjivar and Jason Reed worked closely with Luz Inguez, Natalia Esquivel Silva, Orfil Olmos, Gabriela Ruiz, Moises Mendez, and Alondra Torres from CAMP to cull through their family albums, make new photographs, and record their oral histories. The resulting pictures, text, and audio will be exhibited in the Gonyea Gallery on the fifth floor of the museum, and serve as an expression and acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworker families from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.
