INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
"South Texas Phototaxis" (2018) by Gil Rocha
To celebrate the 4th of July 2018, The River Pierce Foundation commissioned artist Gil Rocha of Laredo, Texas to create an outdoor sculpture made with 100% recycled materials. The sculpture was designed to move with the breeze and to include elements of water and light, to enhance the beautification of the historic plaza in San Ygnacio.
"Marking Out A Way" (2018) by Lucien Kammermann
Made out of mirror fragments, tiles, reflecting powder and cement, French artist Lucien Kammermann's sculpture represents an astronomical navigation landmark, shining at day and glowing at night, visible from sky, etched in earth, pointing at hope, calling out ignorance and cruelty, and as a reminder of our own life through time in the Cosmos.
"Life is History" (2017) by Omar Zubair
Each space within the Treviño-Uribe Fort becomes awakened with a contemporary sound installation by Pakistani-American artist Omar Zubair. The oldest room emits sounds of its own restoration, the courtyard sounds a recent parade of the village's abuelas commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the miracle of the jumping sun. Sounds of meals being cooked are heard in the kitchens and in a bed chamber, a calm lullaby.
