TSB Project is a large-scale print event created with the industrial tools and machinery of construction. The project’s aim is to bring together artists from the border region of Texas to participate in the conversation created by the printing spectacle, images of their experience of border turmoil and the spirit of collaboration to inspire a greater good.
This will be TAMU—SATX “First Ever” large scale print event. Be a part of history, we need volunteers.

The Premise of Breach
A breach is a crack, a rupture, a split. It can be characterized as an unfriendly division, a divorce, a breaking off. A border is a boundary, an extremity, a brink, and can be characterized as a limit. In Texas (and the Americas) we have seen a breaching of our borders. This is a situation that has set neighbor against neighbor and has caused the deaths of thousands of people throughout history up to the present. As artists we want to bring light to the need to heal the anger that this uncharitable chasm has caused.
How it’s done?
Art To The 3rd Power (Art3) will produce a series of relief prints on paper and on bed sheets in a public steamroller print event. The prints will be divided between artists and the Art3’s exhibition suite, and the sheets will be sewn together to create a minimum of a half-mile long wall of imagery. The exhibition suite will travel the country as a museum show while the textile print will be installed exhibited and documented by filmmaker James Borrego and photographer Luis M Garza in various landscapes (preferably along border walls) in Texas and beyond.
“My dream is to exhibit this installation through the middle of the Washington D.C. Mall beginning at the Washington Monument and ending in front of the United States Congress building.” —Kim Bishop (for more info visit www.arttothethirdpower.com)
