a project of the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center

MujerArtes-Sra Inez

Started in 1995 and operating out of a house in San Antonio's Westside, the MujerArtes Women’s Clay Cooperative has been among Esperanza’s groundbreaking programs for 18 years. MujerArtes draws thousands of visitors to their exhibits and studio each year, holding exhibits at the studio, Esperanza gallery and community venues including art fairs, schools, and libraries throughout the city year round. Annual exhibits include Peace Market, Mother’s Day, Día de la Virgen, Dia de los Muertos, and others.

At the MujerArtes studio the women, with the guidance of experienced ceramicists, shape the clay into historic snapshots of their lives as workers, heads of households and marginalized women in a country where they have always had to struggle. Through cooperative efforts, the women create an environment where each woman is a teacher and student by way of their creativity and cultural experiences.
