NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — A photo exhibit showcasing different barriers along the U.S. border with Mexico is reaching an expanded audience.

“Up Close with U.S.-Mexico Border Barriers” was previously shown on Ohio State University’s Newark campus. Photographs and maps featuring California, New Mexico and Texas sections of the border walls and fences are now being displayed at the Dayton International Peace Museum.

Photographs and maps featuring the Arizona sections are on display at the Sinclair Community College library, also in Dayton. Both exhibits run through March.

The exhibit was created by Ohio State-Newark professor of geography Kenneth Madsen. He’s traveled to border states since 1998, researching the issue and taking pictures of fences and walls along the border.
