A Poetry-Art Exhibit "Borderlines" Opening Reception @ Historic Brownsville Museum  | Brownsville | Texas | United States

“Borderlines: Drawing Border Lives” (Fronteras: Dibjuando las vidas fronterizas) pairs portraits of people who live and work along the U.S.- Mexico border with bilingual pomes that have been inspired by each of the drawings. By placing poetry and art side by side we invite you into a world of image and word, figure and figure of speech. Steven and Reefka Schneider have developed this traveling exhibit that consists of twenty-five framed portraits of people who live and work along the U.S./ Mexico border and twenty- five bilingual poems written in response to each portrait. The book will also be available for purchase at the museum.

Free admission and refreshments. For more information, call 956-548-1313.
