When: Sat., Sept. 12, 6-10 p.m. 2015
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of MujerArtes, the mujeres are presenting the exhibit Barrio de Barro: Reclamando y Recordando el Westside de San Antonio (Neighborhood of Clay: Reclaiming and Remembering the Westside of San Antonio). The women have created a clay reflection of the area surrounding their studio in the Guadalupe neighborhood. They showcase houses and buildings that are often deemed as eyesores as beautiful pieces of art. These mujeres believe and portray through their art that “este barrio es bonito”- the Westside homes and local businesses, and by extension the people and culture, are beautiful and worth preserving.
