Bihl Haus Arts will hold a grand opening event on Saturday, July 21 celebrating the opening of "10,000 Years of Love & Resistance," an exhibit honoring the life and work of Dr. Tomàs Ybarra-Frausto.

The event will recognize the 50-year union of Ybarra-Frausto and his partner Dudley Brooks while also commemorating Frausto’s contribution to scholarship on the work of LGBTQIA artists. The installation will feature photography, recorded soundscape and paintings highlighting Ybarra-Frausto’s achievements.

AIDS Lady Anna De Luna will provide HIV/AIDS testing during the reception. Informational tables discussing voter registration, affordable housing and GLBTQ-friendly political groups like Human Rights Campaign San Antonio will be present as well.

A poolside performance by Los Nahuatlatos will bring Latin-fusion sounds to the exhibit, serving as a direct homage to Ybarra-Frausto’s work in Chicanx literature. A special performance by Dr. Rita Urquijo-Ruiz and accordionist Joaquin Linn will take place shortly after as guests enjoy margaritas and fruit paletas.

The event will last from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. To register, visit
