At the Creative Alliance in East Baltimore there's an exhibition in which eight artists tell the stories of some of the children and young people who fled violence in Central America, made the harrowing journey across the Mexican and US borders and landed here in Baltimore, hoping to begin a new life. Tanya Garcia is an artist who has been a Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Fellow at the Creative Alliance for the past year. She curated the exhibition, which is called Después de la Frontera  or After the Border and Maria Aldana is the Manager of Community Arts at the Creative Alliance.
