This image was created for the US Department of Arts and Culture Artists Unite for a Green New Deal - Summer Call Series. It features artists local to San Antonio, who work towards social change in their practice and in their lives. At the top left are Crystal Arias and Mary Agnes Rodriguez, who were the lead artists with San Anto Cultural Arts, on these two murals, located at Herbolaria La India. The top right features Son Queers, a group that explores the queer experience in Son jarocho music as a means of healing, expression, and resistance. The bottom left image is of graphic designer Isabel Ann Castro and writer Natasha Hernandez, whose zine, St. Sucia, exposes what it is to be a mujer in contemporary society. Lastly, a child planting seeds leads the way to our planet’s hopeful future, despite the challenges that may come with growth.
