Pasos Urbanos: A Photograhic Narrative of Borderlands Downtown Culture - Opening Reception

Pasos Urbanos Exhibit

Join us as we celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition, Pasos Urbanos: A Photographic Narrative of the Borderlands Downtown Culture, on Thursday, November 14, 2019, at 5:30 PM.

Pasos Urbanos is composed of selected images from local photographers over the age of 18 currently residing within 150 miles of Downtown El Paso, including Ciudad Juarez. Earlier in August, EPMH put out a call for photography asking applicants to capture the vibrant culture and new developments that make Downtown an exciting, dynamic space. The binational component is meant to strengthen the relationship between the two sister cities, celebrating a shared past, present, and future.

Close to 500 images were submitted epitomizing downtown culture. Of the 98 photographers who submitted their work, 48 will have their images featured in Pasos Urbanos with 57 photographs chosen. The photographs were selected by a panel of community art administrators and two notable photographers from El Paso and Juarez.

The opening reception on Thursday, November 14, 2019, is FREE and open to the public. For more information or to RSVP:
