Mary Agnes Rodriguez is an established multimedia artist based in her hometown, San Antonio, Texas. Her work documents political events, while empowering all segments of the community, especially young people. Depictions of the Westside, the city’s historically Mexican quadrant, include overarching themes of activism, peace and social justice, and include portraits of iconic figures that embody these principles. Many of these themes can also be seen in her mural work like “Mis Palabras, Mic Poder,” (Burleson Elementary), and “Stained Glass Mosaic Mural Para Herbolaria La India.” Rodriguez’s work has also been shown in major exhibitions, including Cheech Marin’s “Chicano Now: American Expressions,” and “Portrait of Xicano Conscience: The Great Judge Albert Pena, Jr.” She has also exhibited at Texas Women’s Museum (Dallas), the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, Centro Cultural Aztlan, Gallista Gallery and 1906 Gallery.
