Combining the talents of internationally recognized artists (including musical mad scientist/performance artist Laurie Anderson, text-centric provocateur Jenny Holzer and mixed-media master Wangechi Mutu), local poet/author/educator Naomi Shihab Nye and sister-powered organizing entity House of Trees Collective (launched by San Antonio’s own Jennifer Khoshbin and Brooklyn-based Amy Khoshbin), the politically minded Artpace exhibition “Word on the Street” comprises artistic and poetic protest banners created in collaboration with local members of the Center for Refugee Services sewing circle.
