It’s April 12 and at this point Amézquita has been walking for eight consecutive days, making her way up to Los Angeles all the way from the U.S.-Mexico border as part of an art performance piece she’s titled Huellas Que Germinan (Footprints That Sprout). The project was born of a course called Socially Engaged Art at ArtCenter College of Design, where Amézquita is currently wrapping up her senior year.
