When Daphne Art Foundation emerged in 2019, the Laredo arts-scape evidenced artists existing in their unique isolation within a City economically thriving in international trade and making historic advances to become the #1 inland port in the nation.

As an organization dedicated to advancing the visual, performing, and media arts in our region, Daphne recognized the opportunity to bridge the gap between local artists and the community. We sought to create resources to help local artists navigate the creative landscape of our city, while simultaneously engaging and challenging them intellectually. We saw the value of bringing artists into the existing economic framework to foster entrepreneurship and to support their aspirations for self-actualization. We knew this required providing artists with the time and space conducive to focused work, a place in which they could be inspired to develop their artistic practices. It was then, and to this day still is, essential to affirm their value to the community.

Daphne fulfills its mission by offering residencies to artists and creatives, exhibiting and promoting their work, and cultivating appreciation and participation in the arts. 

Our vision is that the arts take their place central to our cultural and socioeconomic vitality. With the support of artists, collaborating arts organization, art educators, higher education partners, and the community, we are a step closer to realizing that vision. The pages of TRAGALUZ evidence the progress we – all of us – have forged.

. . .

Please join us as we celebrate the launch of our publication TRAGALUZ, A Borderland Journal of Arts and Culture, an exciting new chapter on Friday, April 5, 2024 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
