Selected Chicano/a artists are tasked with countering the mainstream myths of the Alamo’s iconic status through their traditional and non-traditional paintings, sculptures, and installation work. The Other Side of the Alamo is curated by art historian, curator and cultural worker, Ruben C. Cordova, Ph.D.
The powerful and evocative art works highlight how the Alamo has affected people of color by giving expression to these suppressed narratives. — Cordova
