The staff at Say Sí plans for a certain theme that can be woven into each show throughout the year. From there, students produce art pieces for a variety of events; Fotoseptiembre is one of those.
"Ok, so the theme of Fotoseptiembre; the theme was decided ahead of time during the project planning, and the theme was 'Stillness in Motion,'" said Nicole Amri, program and outreach coordinator for Say Sí.
There’s a new emphasis on public art around the city, and San Antonio’s public arts effort has been awarded a portion of the city budget to create art projects throughout town. The Mulberry Bridge project is the latest work of public art; it’s located at Brackenridge Park. Eileen Pace visits to the Brackenridge Golf Club and talks with artist Diane Kersey, creator of the Toad and Golf Bridges artwork. Also, David Martin Davies also gives us a peek at a Year of Jazz, a citywide celebration that kicks off October 23.
On Wednesday, April 5, a red carpet gala was held to open the "Terra Nostra: Solamente Salma" exhibit at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center. On hand for the festivities were artists George Yepes, Robert Rodriguez, a few celebrities... and Texas Public Radio's Nathan Cone, who had a grand plan to cover the event and get some audio for a personal project he's working on. The exhibit is open to the public. The Blue Star Contemporary Art Center is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon until 6 p.m. For more information, the number is 210-227-6960.
