As San Antonio celebrates its 300th anniversary of Spanish colonization, SAY Sí artists investigate eradicated local narratives through extensive research using oral histories, accounts from historians, local mythology and archival materials. In their work students also acknowledge why these stories have been neglected and the mechanisms that keep them hidden.

Through the annual Stories Seldom Told exhibition, SAY Sí student-artists critically examine topics that go unaddressed in everyday life. After voting on the subject of the exhibition, the young artists collaboratively research and create multidisciplinary installations that shed light on often-ignored issues. Previously, students have explored race, class, mental health, poverty and educational inequity.
