Stolen Education documents the untold story of Mexican-American school children who challenged discrimination in Texas schools in the 1950’s and changed the face of education in the Southwest. The film portrays the courage of these young people, testifying in an era when fear and intimidation were used to maintain racial hierarchy and control. The students won the case, but for almost sixty years the case was never spoken about in the farming community where they lived despite its significance.  The film documents not only an important moment in Mexican American history, but also provides important context to understand our current educational system’s enduring legacy of segregation, discrimination and racism.

This film chronicles the story of a 13-year-old boy who leaves his 13 siblings and his home in Lobatos, Mexico and risks his life to cross the river into the U.S., where he believes all things are possible. Against all odds and defying the limitations placed on Mexicans, Ascencion will become one of the greatest horsemen of his time. Through years of sacrifice, hard work, and proving himself to be extraordinary in a world of ordinary, Ascencion has gained world renown as a champion cutting horse competitor, earning nearly $2.5 million and is the first Mexican American to be inducted into the National Cutting Horse Assoc. Hall of Fame. This is the story of guts, grit, and the triumph of one man who broke through racial and economic barriers to set a new precedent in the competitive cutting horse world – a world where Mexicans were only found cleaning stalls, washing, and saddling horses, but never among the respected competitors.

    CALL FOR 2023 ART EXHIBITIONS

    Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts seeks proposals for 2023, through 2024.  We have 2 spaces, the Main Gallery and the smaller (2D works only) Annex gallery. Both Galleries feature a number of scheduled exhibits that last generally five to six weeks. Two of the exhibits recur annually and are not part of this call to art.

    We seek submissions that explore and showcase the cultural diversity and experience of Latin American cultures, lives, history, and relevant social issues.  And as part of each proposal, we request an educational component to engage with our Artes Academy students and/or our audience.  Lastly, we encourage chosen artists, but not required, to provide us with support videos and/or digital slide shows to enhance the conversation. 

    Artes de la Rosa is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and interpreting the art, culture, lives, and history of the Latino community. We strive to foster creativity and engagement with the arts locally and regionally. This engagement encourages personal growth and well-being of the individual as well as the community.
