“I Miss That Feeling” art installation coming to STC’s Mid-Valley Campus

South Texas College Mid-Valley campus will host “I Miss that Feeling” Feb. 25 with a workshop at 1 p.m. and reception from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

South Texas College’s Library Art Gallery presents “I Miss That Feeling,” an installation exhibition by artist Bárbara Miñarro.

Bárbara Miñarro was born in Monterrey, Mexico and currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. As an artist influenced between two cultures, Miñarro’s work explores ideas of the body in migration. Her soft sculptures, installation, and paintings utilize the tactile memory of clothing, the earth, and the physical body to express the emotional journey of immigration.

The Mid-Valley Campus Library Art Gallery will host a workshop on Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. followed by an artist talk at 6:00 p.m. during the exhibit reception from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The exhibit and workshop will be held at STC's Mid-Valley Campus Library, E 1.210, 400 N Border Ave in Weslaco, Texas.

Admission is free and open to the public. The exhibit opens Tuesday, Feb. 5 and runs through Feb. 25.

STC’s Library Art Gallery Program organizes exhibitions and educational programs to engage student understanding of art and its role in culture, support academic curriculum, and inspire continued education through direct engagement with artists, scholars, and original works of art.
