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.

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.

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.

   3:00 PM  -  4:00 PM Winter Texan Wednesday  
    Contact: Pamela Morales   956-383-6911   pmorales@mosthistory.org
   

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.
