The South Texas College Human Rights Art Exhibit serves as an educational event and addresses global and regional human rights, social justice and environmental issues. The 10th annual juried exhibit was held March 23 - April 24, 2015 at the Cooper Center. Previous exhibits have been held at several other locations including the University of Texas Pan American, Universidad de Monterrey, Mexico & the Progreso Art Gallery, Mexico. The spring 2015 exhibition coincided with the Human Trafficking/Labor Conference that was held at South Texas College. This important conference is sponsored by the STC Women’s Studies Committee and is an essential part of the exhibit‘s planning whereas both venues collaborate to bring awareness to human rights issues and encourage contemplation, refection and activism. Through the exhibit’s conceptually and aesthetically unique artwork we hope to connect with viewers on an emotional and personal level. Furthermore, we hope to open both internal and external dialogues and confront the many horrors and injustices still found in our modern world as well as the unique problems found in our border region of the US and Mexico.
