Mexican American Women 2014

lag-mexamwoman South Texas College’s Mid-Valley Campus Library will present “Mexican American Women,” a black and white photo exhibition that features a series of images from the National Women’s History Project, and has been a collaborative effort between the college’s Pecan Campus Latin@s Club and the library. The exhibit will be on display from June 19 to Aug. 8 at the Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery, located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. Admission is free and open to the public.

The NWHP was founded in Santa Rosa, Calif. over 30 years ago as the top source for information and material about the roles of women in American history. The organization is a catalyst in promoting women as leaders and influential forces in society.

Among its objectives, the NWHP strives to inspire today’s women by having them draw strength from those that came before them by telling their story and how important women have been in American society over the course of history.

STC’s Library Art Gallery exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
