How long have you lived in San Antonio?

I’m a first generation San Antonian. My mother is from a tiny town on the Texas/Mexico border called Rio Grande City and my father is from Morelos, Mexico but I’m a born and raised San Antoniana.

OPEN Pop-up Artist Spotlight: 231 E. Houston

During the month of December three, usually-vacant buildings will be temporarily filled with local art, handmade goods, culinary treats and music. The OPEN pop-up shops provide a unique opportunity for community gathering and local shopping in downtown San Antonio, plus they’re a lot more fun to attend than over-crowded malls during the holiday season. The program, operated by the City’s Center City Development Office and The Downtown Operations Department, wants to shine some light on these old buildings, in hopes that potential retailers will breathe new life into these amazing spaces.

MOSAIC at Blue Star

Blue Star’s MOSAIC After School Program gives San Antonio high school students an amazing opportunity to immerse themselves in the visual arts.

The MOSAIC studio experience exposes students to drawing, painting and other fundamental visual art techniques and it culminates in the creation of mosaic tile art.

MOSAIC is free to students and 100% of all fees go right back into the program, continuing the cycle of creativity. Pretty inspiring.
