What is barrioPOP?


An amalgam of street art and pop culture filtered through a distinctly south Texas, Mexican-American lens.

Hand painted signs, Conjunto music, cartoon icons, museum masters and border politics all find their way into the mix.


And emerge reconfigured in something new, fresh and provocative.
