Opening in September, at San Antonio’s Blue Star Arts Complex and in Brownsville at a location to-be announced

Help us continue the march!

This exhibition focuses on marches, literal ones—what they symbolize and what they aim to accomplish—by featuring collateral material from the marches you have taken part in.

Many of us have marched for something—whether it be civil rights, racial equality, an end to war or nuclear weapons, LGBTQ+ rights, women’s rights, or an end to gun violence.

Whether you’ve cheered from the sidewalks, followed along or led the advance, we want photos from the marches that have moved you. We are particularly interested in photos of the signs that have expressed your hopes or demands, and photos of you and your sisters (and brothers) in arms.
 

Exhibit your passion - call for entries!

Our goal is to create a digital archive to serve as an online march living beyond a single gallery exhibition. We’re asking you to post your march photos to Instagram, tag @MarchesThatMoveUs and @PPSouthTexas and share something about why the march moved you using the hashtag #MarchesThatMoveUs and #ppsouthtexas.

You can also submit your photos by emailing us at [email protected] And if you’d like to drop off a photo, or maybe an actual sign, call 210-572-5279.

A selection of the images we receive* will be featured in a September exhibition at the Blue Star Arts Complex. The exhibition will be curated by Ethel Shipton with support from Casie Lomeli and will also include original artwork from ten of San Antonio’s leading artists. We will also present the exhibition in the Rio Grande Valley, featuring works contributed by Valley artists. Stay tuned for date and venue.

Keep the march going!

Like, Share, and follow the archive as it grows.
This archive will continue to grow beyond the September exhibition, so be sure to share the marches that moved you throughout the year and beyond!
