Art Review : BISD Faculty Show
Being around when this show was hung, for some reason it felt this show was rush, same day drop and hang your own, fend for your space.. What I did not understand is why the show was not curated by the museums curator, does this event lack funding or volunteering ? What is the arrangement there ?
Speaking with some of the artist on this show, for feed back I heard, "well I have new work but I just brought whatever, since it is a mandatory event, I would like to use my new work for a one man show, where I control the invornment, this is simply just chaos ".
I can't help but note what teachers must go through, on Mondays to go to work and rush over to the museum of home pickup the paintings, rush to the museum and hang. The work they are hanging is work they take pride in, work they do at home or in there studio at there convinience.
I thought the reception, lacked celebration to honor the artist, for what an art teachers goes through, "add funding for supplies,or do with what you got, perhaps art is not longer thought with just a ebony pencil and paper, it is much more complex ",sure its a school night, but where was the wine and cheese reception, where was the tamales and menudo, where was the mariachis ..
Let us celebrate the artist, the art educators of Brownsville, let us fund them so that they have all the supplies they need, let us provide them with bigger rooms and eisels and proper facilities so that they may teach and enrich our children with the greatest light I have ever known............the knowledge of art.
