The benefit brought 700 people to the terminal to celebrate and support Storefront. It was the last public event held in the 1962 Eero Saarinen-designed structure before its redevelopment into a hotel begins later this year.

BEYOND BORDERS activated the terminal with a variety of experiences, including a series of virtual and mediated installations, a live auction, film montages and messages, a special photographic commission, global food experiences, portrait and raffle opportunities, and musical performances.

The event reflected upon a growing collective consciousness about spaces of difference and the desire to transcend them. During the evening, Storefront honored photographer and agency Ezra Stoller / ESTO / Erica Stoller, whose photos of the terminal are a reference to the worlds of architecture and photography, as well as architect and activist Teddy Cruz, who has investigated the nuances of the US-Mexico border for decades.

“The border exists only to be transgressed; and isn’t the ultimate aspiration of art and architecture the transgression of our own fears and conventions? This is what Storefront stands for, as a cultural space it has always been at the forefront of cultural debate pushing our creative fields to reinvent themselves.” -Teddy Cruz, honoree.
