The Latino List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders

September 18, 2018-January 6, 2019

On loan from the San Antonio Museum of Art, The Latino List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders presents thirty-one portraits of influential Latinos who span the worlds of culture, business, politics, and sports. From professional golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez to rapper Pitbull to Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, renowned photographer and director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders documents the vibrant culture of Hispanic America. The Latino List is the museum’s major fall exhibition, in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Texas is particularly well-represented in the series, which features former mayor Henry Cisneros, writer Sandra Cisneros, and South Texas’s actress Eva Longoria. 

As one of America’s foremost contemporary portraitists, Greenfield-Sanders (American, born 1952) has explored constructions of identity and community throughout his career. His works invite viewers to ask questions about how we participate in groups, both self-defined and defined by others. Is there an essential communal identity? At the same time, his candid portraits celebrate the individual characters of their sitters. Previous series include The Black List (2008), a collection of contemporary African American sitters; Injured Soldiers (2008); About Face (2012), portraits of female models; The Women’s List (2015); and The Trans List (2017).

Greenfield-Sanders has also made award-winning documentaries that similarly explore community and biography including Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart, which won a Grammy Award for Best Long-Form Video.

To see the trailer for the documentary The Latino List, made in tandem with the exhibition, please click here.

The exhibition is included in the cost of General Admission and is free for IMAS Members. A special preview of the exhibition will be hosted on September 15, 2018 during our Collage Annual Gala.

misc_none.png 6:00 PM Jan LeBleu Artist Reception and Gallery Talk Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend

The City of Edinburg is hosting its newest Exhibit by Jan LeBleu at the Dustin M. Sekula Memorial Library. The exhibit is currently on display until January 11th. The Library & Cultural Arts will host an artist reception and gallery talk on Tuesday, December 11th at 6 pm at the Edinburg Library presented by the Edinburg Arts Foundation.
 
Jan has always been and continues to be, passionate about natural surroundings.  This passion allows her to express her feelings by transferring the vibrant colors in nature and in her surroundings to paper or canvas.  She is particularly adept at painting the flowers, birds, and all natural things.
 
Jan is a member of the Harlingen Art Forum, the Willacy County Art League, the Upper Valley Art League, and the Hidalgo County Watercolor Society. She has participated in various art exhibits including annual shows like Beachcombers, the Pharr Spring Classic, RioFest, and Artrageous Art Show in Edinburg

Jan has taught art in Harlingen and Raymondville for many years and currently teaches in McAllen. Although she started painting with oils, she primarily paints with watercolor and acrylics. She does, however, teach all media. Her paintings hang in private collections across Texas.

This exhibit is one of the many exhibits held at the library throughout the year. If you are an established or beginning artist, take a moment to contemplate the works of Jan LeBlue. The best way to market yourself is through networking at Exhibitions and Gallery Talks. For more information on this and other events please visit the City of Edinburg’s Cultural Arts website at www.edinburgarts.com or call the Edinburg Library at 956-383-6246.

Meet Edward Vidaurre and Rodney Gomez at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library. Vidaurre and Gomez will be promoting their edited work titled Called to Rise: Rio Grande Valley Youth Anthology 2018. This is Volume 1 of the McAllen Poet Laureate Anthology Series. Vidaurre and Gomez have summoned the Rio Grande Valley’s youth to rise and share about their lives through poetry. The result is this collection of life, love, illness, politics, and hope, in which local youth (students from the 3rd grade to the 12th grade) have written from the heart.

The editors take pride in presenting select contributors of this anthology to recite their poetry to everyone attending the book presentation and book signing, which is scheduled to take place at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library on Thursday, December 13, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

His new collection, Jazzhouse, is forthcoming from Prickly Pear Press. He has been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize, and he is the founder of Pasta, Poetry, and Vino – a poetry reading series in the lower Rio Grande Valley. He resides in McAllen, TX with his wife and daughter.

Rodney Gomez was born and raised in Brownsville, TX. The son of migrant farmworkers, he is the youngest of seven siblings and the first to attend college. He is the author of Citizens of the Mausoleum (2018) and Ceremony of Sand (forthcoming from YesYes Books, 2019). His chapbooks include Mouth Filled with Night (2014), winner of the Drinking Gourd Prize, and Spine (2015), winner of the Gloria Anzaldua Prize. He is an editor for Latino Book Review and will serve as the 2020-2021 McAllen Poet Laureate. He holds a BA from Yale University and an MFA from the University of Texas Pan American.

Sunday Speaker Series – The Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO) Conference of December of 1969: The Struggle for Chicana/o Self-Determination in South Texas

December 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In 1969, conferences organized by Mexican Americans throughout the southwest provided settings for new expressions of ethnic nationalism and laid down plans for Chicana/o Studies in colleges and universities. While these conferences received scholarly attention among historians, the Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO) conference held in December of 1969 at La Lomita Monastery in Mission, Texas, is mostly unknown.

The history of the MAYO conference deserves deeper examination for its role in Chicana/o institutional self-determination in South Texas. The event represents one of the most transformative moments in the broader Chicana/o Movement. Carlos Cantú will detail the history of the local Chicana/o Movement in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and situate the history of the MAYO conference in the context of grassroots and national struggles for Mexican American civil and equal rights. Out of this conference emerged the decision to found La Raza Unida Party, a third political party; Colegio Jacinto Treviño, an independent Chicana/o college; and Amigos Unidos Credit Union, a community-based financial cooperative for migrant families.

Cantú graduated from the University of Houston with a doctorate degree in U.S. History in May 2016. He has presented on the history of Mexican American educational struggles at annual regional and national conferences, including the Texas State Historical Association, the American Historical Association-Pacific Coast Branch and the Alumni of Color Conference at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His work has been published in South Texas Studies and The Journal of South Texas Studies, and he currently teaches at South Texas College.

Sunday Speaker Series is included in the fee for regular museum admission. FRIENDS of the MOSTHistory are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship and must present their FRIENDship card at the Admissions Desk.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created at the museum by her family to honor her memory and to continue her commitment to providing opportunities for education to the community.

Winter Texans and retirees are invited to participate in “Winter Texan Wednesday: It’s a Hard Luck Life!” featuring Neil Cassady, a Texas Master Naturalist and museum volunteer.

Imagine living in South Texas before air conditioning, internet access and other modern conveniences to protect you from the region’s riparian forest landscape. How could anyone survive the scorching sun rays in South Texas, or the landscape filled with very few trees but lots of brush? Cassaday will discuss how the Coahuiltecans and early Spanish settlers survived in the Rio Grande Valley with the help of native plants and trees. The presentation will be followed by a mini-tour of MOSTHistory’s River Frontier exhibit.

    Contact: Cheryl LaBerge   (956) 793-6254   cblaberge@gmail.com
   

The Malpass Brothers don’t just sound retro … they are retro!  Their smooth vocal blend, skillful musicianship, and off-the-cuff quips are reminiscent of many country legends to whom they pay tribute.  The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours, and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to the Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest. Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have shared billing with country music legends like Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more. The title cut video from their album Memory That Bad hit CMT Pure Country’s Top Ten. Their most recent self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads’ Organic Records in 2015.  This will be a wonderful evening of old-time gospel music, songs made famous by Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, and other classic country artists, plus some new Malpass tunes. 

Presented by the nonprofit Harlingen Concert Association, as part of their 2018-19 season.  For info and tickets, visit www.HarlingenConcert.com or call the Harlingen Municipal Auditorium box office at (956) 216-5990.
