    The Creation of Me

    A three-month art project challenged students from Brooks Academy of Science and Engineering to take on the complicated and nuanced theme of identity. The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures has collaborated with Brooks to show the results of this project as the next student exhibit, “The Creation of Me.”


    Through interviews with parents, grandparents and other family members, students uncovered stories about their heritage and developed an understanding of their places in society. The exercise instilled a sense of pride in their pasts and their families. They discovered and defined who they are and where they come from.


    Using the dry point with Plexiglas process, students turned a family photo into a work of art. The institute will select from 46 pieces from student participants in grades 9 to 12.
