‘Oddities of San Antonio’

San Antonio’s rich history includes a cornucopia of weirdness just waiting to be uncovered by the casual observer. From La Llorona and the Ghost Tracks to the tale of the Donkey Lady, our fair city has its share of ghouls coexisting with citizenry. Híjole SA’s October exhibition celebrates all that’s odd in San Anto with a group show centered on local lore and iconic imagery that runs a gamut of weirdness. The show will feature work by 17 local artists, including Rebekah Hurst’s taxidermy art, Jacob Silva’s creepy clown photos, Lauren Raye Snow’s take on the Catholic icon Anima Sola and macabre bowls made with embedded insects and teeth by Justin Chase Black. Híjole co-founder Sara Barcus tops things off with her Odditorial Map of San Antonio, Texas, a series of 30 illustrations of major figures in the Alamo City’s spookiest legends.

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.
