With a rapidly growing demographic, the role women of color play in shaping our communities has become more evident and continues to increase significantly. The national focus on debates over women’s rights, reproductive health, and the wage gap have only supported the importance of the tremendous strides women of color have made in higher education, entrepreneurship, and political leadership, with a record number of women seeking and winning political office in 2018. Coinciding with the Me Too Movement, Black Lives Matter, and the growing opposition of the Trump administration and his border policies, now more than ever, the voices of women of color are critical to shaping lives today and generations to come.

Intersections celebrates women of color through a diverse collection of 22 artists and their stories from various experiences and perspectives. In addition to highlighting artists from San Antonio, the exhibition aims to explore spaces across Texas and the narratives of women of color from the region. Presa House has reached out to a selection of curators from Austin, Houston, Corpus Christi, and Laredo, TX, to create space and a platform for these artists.
