On view at the San Antonio Museum of Art through December 31, revered photographer and director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ series “The Latino List” explores 21st-century Latin@ identity via 31 portraits of notable figures, including such familiar faces as author, MacArthur “Genius” and former San Antonio resident Sandra Cisneros (The House on Mango Street, Caramelo, Woman Hollering Creek), politician Henry Cisneros (San Antonio Mayor from 1981 to 1989 and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 1993 to 1997), and actress and philanthropist Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, Eva’s Heroes). If you’ve yet to take in the exhibition, SAMA’s special event “The San Antonio List” presents a unique viewing opportunity with an abundance of local flavor.
After kicking off with a Q&A with beloved yet controversial Spanish-language radio personality Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo (whose nickname translates to Tweety Bird), the evening takes shape in a panel discussion on “what it means to be Latino/a/x in San Antonio” between Texas State Representative Diego Bernal, City Councilman Rey Saldaña, visual artist and entrepreneur Ana Fernandez, Puro Pinche founder Stephanie Guerra, Giant Noise San Antonio president Rose Reyes, Boulevardier Group co-founder Jeret Peña and moderator Gilbert Garcia of the San Antonio Express-News to be followed by drinks (cash bar provided by The Brooklynite) and a Latin-inspired DJ set in the West Courtyard courtesy of Sound Cream Airstream.
