June 2015 San Antonio MINI ART MUSEUM Exhibition travels to Europe_PRESS RELEASE
Deep In The Heart: A Texas Trilogy
The Spare Parts MINI ART MUSEUM travels across the Atlantic June 8, 2015 to exhibit artwork by Vincent Valdez, Angela Fox & Christiana Puente.
The MINI ART MUSEUM (MAM) is proud to present Deep in the Heart: A Texas Trilogy, an exhibition featuring the work of three San Antonio born- & based-artists, that will travel through Europe June 8-24, 2015.
Deep in the Heart: A Texas Trilogy artists are: 2015 Texas State Artist Vincent Valdez, Angela Fox & East Central High School senior/Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) 2015 Texas State medalist Christiana Puente.
“Not only are participating artists pushing boundaries in this exhibition because this is the smallest work they have ever created (& commissioned by a museum), they are also surpassing geographical borders,” explains MAM Board Member Nancy Casanova.
“My artwork is going to places I have never been before,” exclaims Angela Fox.
Casanova will exhibit & document Deep in the Heart: A Texas Trilogy in the following European cities June 8-24, 2015: Paris, Munich, Venice, Florence & Rome. “Each artist created a small-scale portrait reflective of our community’s diverse artistic craftsmanship, & we are pleased to share their work with the rest of the world,” Casanova continues.
“Each artwork is no larger than a business card (2×3 inches) but packs a powerful story. Don’t let size deceive you,” notes Mary Elizabeth Cantú, Spare Parts Founder/MAM Co-Founder. “We provide the magnifying glasses, too.”
“We are ecstatic that the MINI ART MUSEUM is going to Europe & I don’t think we could ask for a better group of artists to represent San Antonio,” says MAM Co-Founder Gabriela Santiago.
The Spare Parts MAM is a non-traditional art venue & serves as a site-specific institution that generates accessible fine art experiences.
Spare Parts founded the MINI ART MUSEUM in 2013 to bring the fine arts museum to schools & the community. This opportunity for schools seeks to eliminate bus fees, complicated scheduling & simply brings fine art to classrooms & the world.
In 2014 & 2015 the MINI ART MUSEUM won back-to-back Contemporary Art Month Through the Looking Glass Awards for Bending Perceptions. This year San Antonio Magazine recognized the MINI ART MUSEUM as the city’s Best Program Introducing Youth to the Art World.
