CAM Perennial 2014 "Untitled (Public Display)" community portion Part 1 to take place this Saturday April 12, 2014.

Four Leaf Clover Hunting Trip: Saturday, April 12, 12 – 2 p.m. at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center 723 S. Brazos St. San Antonio, TX 78207 telephone: 210.271.3151

Together with Mark Menjivar, members of the community will walk throughout the neighborhood to look for four leaf clovers. With a brief talk prior to the hunt, the duration of the trip will last around 1.5 hours, but can vary according to the number of participants. The path taken will be documented on the large Map in the gallery space.


Just as a reminder:

Curated by Leslie Moody Castro Untitled(Public Display), is an exhibition in progress. The gallery space of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center will evolve as artists Christie Blizard and Mark Menjivar collaborate with each other, the surrounding community and gallery visitors. Works will be added, taken out of the space, and the process documented on a hand drawn map of the community that will serve as a focal point of the exhibition. The crux of the exhibition is to offer the surrounding community and audience the opportunity to play an active role throughout the duration of the exhibition. It is a work in progress where everyone is invited to participate. This project is as reliant upon its audience as it is on the artists participating.

CAMx 2014 (Part 2)

Hello Everybody.  We just wanted to remind visitors that the second part to CAMx 2014 will be happening soon in Mexico City.  Three Walls' Michele Monseau has curated an exhibition to feature the artwork of San Antonio artists Joey Fauerso, Beto Gonzales, Leigh Ann Lester, Cruz Ortiz, and Ann Wood at Centro Cultural Border in Mexico City.  These Five Texas artists will “contaminate” and “hybridize” the Border gallery with their works and also “invade” the outdoor urban space surrounding Border through a performance/social sculpture.  You should make the trek to support San Antonio Contemporary Art, Contemporary Art collaborations, and because it sounds cool to say that you went to Mexico City for an exhibition.


More details and images will follow as they become available.
