The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is currently hosting two collaborative community exhibitions that highlight the art of screen printing, Screen It: Youth Identity Through Art and Aligned Mind.
Screen It: Youth Identity Through Art brings students from Buell Central Discipline Alternative Education Program, of Pharr, San Juan, Alamo Independent School District (PSJA ISD), and local screen-printers, Palo Santo Prints, together at the IMAS to learn the creative and technical processes of screen printing, equipping students with the important technical skills utilized in the field of printmaking, which resulted in the Screen It: Youth Identity Through Art exhibition.
Screen It: Youth Identity Through Art will be on exhibit at IMAS from January 21 to February 25.
Screen It: Youth Identity Through Art was made possible by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) – Arts Respond and is supported, in part, by a grant from Texas Women for the Arts, a program of the Texas Cultural Trust.
Aligned Mind is a collaborative, community exhibition spotlighting the artistic talents of Cielo Zuniga, Ruby Delgado, and Savannah Muñoz. This exhibition marks the culmination of Trucha’s inaugural Movimiento Screen Printing Fellowship.
In August 2023, Trucha, a multi-media organization, issued a call inviting local artists to join the Movimiento Screen Printing Fellowship, developed in partnership with Tree Haus Creative Studio. The fellowship aimed to empower and support local artists in creating socially impactful screen-printed artworks or projects. In late 2023, participating artists Zuñiga, Muñoz, and Delgado honed their skills as printmakers under the mentorship of Tree Haus Creative Studio during a dynamic one-month program.
Aligned Mind will be on exhibit at IMAS from January 20 to February 25, 2024, inviting audiences to experience the culmination of this inspiring fellowship.
