San Antonio artist Vincent Valdez has created an exhibition that, let’s face it, is a little disturbing. But then, maybe art, from time to time, should be.
It’s called "Strangest Fruit" and it’s at Artpace. It owes its concept from the Abel Meeropol poem "Strange Fruit," which was penned about seeing lynched black people hanging from trees in the South. Valdez said there's something perhaps even more unsettling than the subject for that poem.
