Our Borders

Our Borders is a statement about our national borders being an open fence celebrating our multinational immigrant culture. The symbolic fire element (match sticks) portrays the passion to keep our borders open to receive new people seeking a better quality of life in keeping with the hopes and values of the American Dream. The match theme also embodies holding up a light to our coastline illuminating the way.
