Those Brownsvillonians are a creative bunch:
Here are a few images of some of the works from this Saturdays “Art Against the Wall” organized by Mark Clark director of Gallery 409,in Brownsville TX. The border patrol came and required it be taken down because of a lack of a permit, but it had been up for almost 4-5 hours, this is the second art against the wall experience, someone mentioned it would be nice to have an outside curator for the next exhibit, and of course a permit. Those pesky SDS radical characteristics of activism from the sixties are mainlined into Mr. Clarks’ DNA, me thinks. Congratulations to Mr. Clark for his community responsibility and activism. It was very windy and the glare from the glass on the photographs was a challenge, please forgive the poor representations of images.
Where are our Laredo artists?? Oh wait, that would be me too, right – but I haven’t picked up a brush, a knife, paint, nothing in a few years :(.
My favorite piece – border patrol piñatas. Sorry to all the “partners” out there and El Partner but great statement art.
