Video+Gallery: EPISD Student show celebrates African-American contributions to art

El Paso ISD, in cooperation with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Eta Pi Omega Chapter, recently held the opening to the K-12 Student Art show celebrating African-American artists and their contributions to Abstract and Modern Art.

Art students of every grade level in EPISD celebrated the contributions and cultural impact of African Americans in the United States during an annual exhibit that marks Black History Month.

“This year we are celebrating visual artists throughout time and how they shaped modern and contemporary art,” said Rosa Aguilar, EPISD’s visual arts facilitator.

Dozens of pieces are currently hanging at the El Paso International Museum of Art and will remain on exhibit through February 26.
