The most rewarding part of creating art is when the viewer sees their story in your work. Gracias, @lmtorres2, for adding, "Te Llevo Conmigo," to your collection. It is the story of the border crosser, always taking her ancestors and spirit guides with her- like I know you do every day. Besos, chulo ❤️ #chicanaartist#chicanastoryteller#conocimiento#Resist
Gracias @utsa and especially la familia de @wsiutsa !!! Every year your packed #WomensHistoryMonth schedule of presentations inspires me along with all of the students and community to continue to #Resist in their work! And, gracias for bringing me and Sarah together for our talk "On Not Belonging (Anywhere): San Antonio Artivists on Trauma and Art." These are crucial topics to our community healing and #conocimiento.#chicanaartists#chicanaauthor
Join us for the opening of “Aquí Estamos y no nos Vamos” Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 6pm at the Esperanza (922 San Pedro Ave.) The exhibit, Aquí Estamos Y No Nos Vamos, highlights the resistance, solidarity, anger, hope, and healing women of color are experiencing in response to the abusive and oppressive rhetoric that is/was disseminated during Trump’s campaign and carried on into his presidency. The art speaks to a transformation of a social or personal strife that translates into piercing visions of the present and a futuro con Esperanza. The artists featured in this exhibit believe that art must address the abuse on our bodies, communities, and lands.
This exhibit is part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations of the Esperanza. This exhibit is curated by Rebel Mariposa.
This event is FREE to the public with a small reception and performance art by various artists featured in the exhibit. #aquiestamos#chingonas@esperanzacenter curated by @rebelmariposa@akire_casasola@saakred@casarahcasarah@esterhernandezart@typographysnob@mnezrod@soozgonzalez
