Cruz Ortiz

2020 Artist-in-Residence
San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

Local artist Cruz Ortiz uses painting, drawing, and public activation to address issues related to his experiences growing up in the bicultural landscape of South Texas.

This year, we comemmorate the tricentennial of Mission San Jose. Mission San Jose was founded on the banks of the San Antonio River in 1720. Some of our community members living in San Antonio today have ancestors who lived in the missions 300 years ago.

The Artist-in-Residence program at San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is generously supported by Mission Heritage Partners, the official friends group of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
