Reflecting San Antonio’s diversity and growing multiculturalism, “Wurzbach Manor” tells the story of three families living in the Wurzbach Manor apartments in North San Antonio, Texas. The exhibition is the result of the participatory art collaboration between the Niyonkuru, Day, and Paw Moo families and artist Joey Fauerso, writer Jenny Browne, educator Ryan Sprott, and photographer Jason Reed. For over two years this diverse group of individuals has worked together as a community using art to bridge sociocultural borders and provide space for these largely unheard voices. This project uses participatory methods of art creation in order that these families can tell of their journey to and life in San Antonio after being displaced from their homes in Tanzania, New Orleans, and Burma. This exhibition brings forward important stories and insider narratives about life as an American in all of its complexity, while also speaking to art's ability to function not simply as an end-product but also as a practice in self-realization, cultural exchange, and community building.
