Graduate Public Practice presents an exhibition of field work by first-year students, Ni Chana Ti-Juana. Describing a condition or situation defined by a lack of resolution: not one or the other, neither here nor there, the term was a conceptual point of departure. Students took three trips to Camino Verde, a community in Tijuana, Baja California. The research projects have been facilitated by faculty member Bill Kelley Jr. and Cog•nate Collective, with the assistance of Polen Audiovisual and in collaboration with Centro Comunitario Camino Verde, Casa de las Ideas, and community organizers Don Polo, Alma López, and Tico Orozco.  Participating students and alumni include Victor Albarracin, Claudia Borgna, Estephany Campos, Noé Gaytán, Tonya Ingram, Mario Mesquita, Carol Zou, Carmen Uriarte and Tamarind Rossetti.
