Leila Banner

STC’s Starr Co. Campus Library presents an installation of mixed-media artwork by instructor Leila Hernandez

Mandala workshop and exhibition reception: February 23, 2023, from 10 – 11 a.m.

The South Texas College Starr Co. Library Art Gallery presents “Ximopanoltih Papalotl, Mi Amor (Welcome Butterfly, My Love),” a mixed media art installation by STC Art Instructor Leila Hernandez.

Hernandez is a native of El Salvador and earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Florida. Her international travels have influenced her artwork, where she echoes the color, texture, and compositions of the countries she has visited into images that honor her background and ideas of loss, transformation, healing, and love. Her environmentally sustainable artwork, composed mainly from repurposed used clothing, stems from her studies of Diseño Artesanal (Handcraft Design) at the Universidad Dr. Jose Matias Delgado, where Hernandez learned about ceramics, textiles, and metals.

Instructor Hernandez will lead a workshop on February 23 from 10 – 11 a.m., where participants will learn about and create mandalas, a geometric configuration usually representing a spiritual journey.

The exhibit opens on Monday, January 23rd, and will be on view until July 1, 2023. The display and event will be at the STC Starr Co. Campus Library Art Gallery, Building K, located at 142 FM 3167 in Rio Grande City, TX. The exhibition, reception, and workshop are free and open to the public.

The South Texas College Library Art Gallery organizes exhibitions and educational programs to engage student understanding of art, support the academic curriculum, and inspire continued education through direct engagement with artists, scholars, and original works of art.

Life & Death on the Border image

South Texas College’s Pecan Campus Library Art Gallery, History Department, and the Center for Mexican American Studies proudly present “Life and Death on the Border: 1910-1920,” a panel exhibit that includes photographs, postcards, court documents, and rare artifacts that tell the story of daily life and re-examines Texas historical events of the early 1900s–specifically the early 1900s in the Rio Grande Valley and South Texas. STC History Professor and co-founder of the Refusing to Forget project Dr. Trinidad Gonzales, worked alongside colleagues throughout the state and nation to help research and put together this exhibit and event series. These histories inspired Tejano literature, art, and music and influenced the creation of the Mexican American civil rights movement.

The exhibit will be on view from February 9th – June 6th at the STC Pecan Campus Library. A playlist put together by the Bullock Museum, Música Tejana, is a “collection of musical forms, styles, and genres that evolved primarily in South Texas during the 19th century and narrated the lives and challenges of people living along the south Texas-northern Mexican border.”

The schedule for the event is as follows:

Opening session: February 9th, BLDG. U, East Ballroom – 2.100

5:30 – 6:00 pm Corridos by STC Conjunto
