Fragments of a Dream

Akosua Adoma Owusu’s 2007 video 'Intermittent Delight' juxtaposes close-ups of batik textiles, fashion and design from the 1950s and 1960s, images of men weaving and women sewing in Ghana, and fragments of a 1960s Westinghouse commercial intended to teach women how to decorate a refrigerator. The video touches on the idea of feminism’s uneven geographical and historical development, and the nuances of the labor conditions that women face, depending on where they live. Owusu’s video is complemented by artworks by African American artists drawn from the McNay’s collection.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
