—Our mission: “Contributing to the revitalization of communities in San Antonio by Cultivating Cultural Capital."

In order to accomplish this mission we create and educate about art and art processes.  As artists we work individually and collectively to accomplish this goal. We create work that seeks fulfillment, identity and social impact at three levels- The Individual, The Collective and The Community. This creates an opportunity for transformation and growth as these levels interact. We have had the opportunity to collaborate individually and collectively with various artists in the San Antonio area. Additionally, we also provide an outreach curriculum program with components that can be powerful contributors to the sustainability of any cultural arts non-profit organization that may be looking to expand their outreach. The components range in subject matter from Artist Training Workshops, and Artist Talks with Exhibits. Additionally we are available for Large Scale Printing Events production and consulting.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce that we now have a permanent archive(UTSA Library Special Collections) that will serve as a repository for information, articles, photographs and documentation of our mission and how we make it happen while interacting with the San Antonio community.
