Bihl Haus Arts

Dear Friends of Bihl Haus Arts,
As 2011 comes to an end, I am writing to ask that you become a Bihl Haus Arts supporter. We need your financial support not simply to continue producing contemporary and timely exhibits in the gallery, but to continue to expand our GO! Arts Program to seniors in San Antonio. A recently concluded 14-month study by the UT Health Science Center has shown the amazing psychological, physical, and emotional benefits our program has on seniors, especially lower income seniors. We need your help to continue this important work.
As 2012 approaches, we have some amazing exhibits planned, exhibits you won’t want to miss. The first Bihl Haus Arts book publication is in the works. Performances, readings, music, and other ‘magical’ events are planned. And, we will be taking the GO! Arts Program to other campuses. But we can’t do it without your help.
gift truly matters.
On behalf of everyone at Bihl Haus Arts, thank you. Thank you for being there. Thank you for supporting us. And thank you for growing with us.

Awaken the Sleeping Poet

Awaken the Sleeping Poet, Barnes & NobleThursday, December 29, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

It's December and our last Awaken the Sleeping Poet for the year.  It's our annual open mic.  We've had a good turn out the last two years, and I hope we do it again this year.

Since it's open mic for two hours, you can bring several poems to share.  It's your opportunity to get some serious face time and some mic time that you otherwise would not get.

And it's the perfect time to bring a friend and introduce them to poetry.  That's what Awaken the Sleeping Poet is all about.

I hope to see you there!

Indigenous Quotient, Stalking Words

Camaradas: Aztlan Libre Press, an independent press based out of San Antonio, Texas, announces the release of our third publication, Indigenous Quotient/Stalking Words: American Indian Heritage as Future, by Juan Gómez-Quiñones.

Gómez-Quiñones is an award-winning educator, author, community activist, editor, poet, and for over forty years, one of the foremost Chicano historians and scholars in the U.S.

This is a text sure to become essential and a classic, a challenge to every living scholar of the Americas.

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Professor Emeriti, Ethnic Studies, California State University East Bay, and author of Roots of Resistance: A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico.

 These two essays cover fifty years of scholarship that includes the forging of Chicana/o Studies, and they are especially important at a time when most Chicana/o scholars have no historical memory of the importance of Indigenous thought on the formation of their discipline.

Rodolfo F. Acuña, Chicana/o Studies Department/California State University Northridge, and author of Occupied America: A History of Chicanos.

If you’re interested in receiving a preview copy for your program and courses, or for review purposes, contact us at or at 210.710.8537.
