            Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth

            @ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

            "This poem is an ode to every hard-working artist who knows the joy of struggle from which their art comes."

            In Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 20, poet laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero looks back at her ancestors’ history of labor and struggle as art, a legacy of poets, musicians, and painters whose artistry was a way to map and ultimately transcend the world. Art, she says, is a pursuit of truth. It was her ancestor’s many generations of that pursuit that ultimately gave her the privilege and position of being asked to make art: the maker, not the object. Through poetry, Guerrero invites us to share in that space of openness, vulnerability and ultimately grace.

            Becoming a Musician: From Mexico’s Silver Mines to the Clubs of San Antonio

            BY JOE REYES
            @ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

            Joe Reyes owes his work ethic to his family and the discipline they instilled in him. The promise of work in Mexico’s silver mines attracted his great grandfather’s family, but the Mexican Revolution sent his family fleeing north to Texas. His early exposure to music came in the form of folkloric Mexican music, but it was “Los Beatles” that struck a chord. Joe Reyes’ presentation shares his musical journey that included different acts, international tours and even a Grammy win and a Latin Grammy nomination.

            Damn the Torpedoes: A Life in Service to Art

            BY PAULA OWEN
            @ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

            Paula Owen believes artists are essential in a healthy society — agents of social change able to articulate bold, complicated and important ideas. That passion has driven her to take great calculated risks in her life and career, and to great effect: She overcame childhood polio and helped raise her siblings after her mother was left disabled by the disease. She went on an archaeological dig during a military coup in Panama. She graduated college at a time when 70% of women did not work outside the home. That determination contributed to her successful leadership of the Southwest School of Art, where she serves her ultimate goal of fostering artists in the Southwest.
