"St. Anthony's Lost & Found"

Ana Fernandez
Inspiring reflection and collaboration from unexpected angles, the multifaceted exhibition “St. Anthony’s Lost & Found” aims to commemorate San Antonio’s Tricentennial “through a study of poetry and how it can communicate a personal, social, and historical connection to the land, people, and cultures that make up the city’s landscape in 2018.” Organized by San Antonio Poet Laureate Jenny Browne, the project nods to an enduring prayer to our patron saint (Dear St. Anthony, please come around; something is lost and it cannot be found) while employing multiple forms of expression to “pay tribute to both the known and lost history of our city.” Anchored by a collection of 500 elegiac poems students and seniors submitted in postcard format, the exhibition invites visitors to contribute their own poems to the mix and take in four other distinct components: “Forgotten Histories” (comprised of drawings and prints by Albert Alvarez, Fernando Andrade, Lisette Chavez, Juan Zavala Castro, Joe De La Cruz, Barbara Felix, Xavier Gilmore, Joe Harjo, Kristy Perez, Jose Sotelo, Hiromi Stringer, Allison Valdivia, and Jose Villalobos — all inspired by narratives poet Rosemary Catacalos penned in the voice of St. Anthony); “Lost Structures” (celebrating bygone and existing icons — Whopper Burger, Teatro Nacional, La Gloria, and F.A. Chapa Drugstore among them — through the eyes of painters Ana Fernandez and Abraham Mojica); “Paloma” (an installation by M. Guadalupe Marmolejo investigating the dwindling use of old-school Spanish names like Ascención, Alma and Caridad); and a companion video piece artist Joey Fauerso created with Browne.
