Personal Note: Got word of this event from local RGV artist and activist Rene Garza. Sounds very interesting and if you are not into art, then I would also encourage those who are pollitically active to attend this event to get a perspective as to how art is being used as an agent of social and political change. I also like Rene Garza's art for the performance element he adds to his work, which is a rare find in the Valley. You will find many artists working in a traditional mediums but not many performance artists. In art school I took a few performance art classes and let me tell you, I was horrible at it! haha. And it all varies, some performance art just horrible, HORRIBLE! And then you will see one piece, that just completely moves you and you're intrigued and captivated. Ah...performance art..you either love it or hate it.
