Last Friday, the final Cut and Paste installation was installed at the Witte Building, 135 E Commerce St. This installation is an ambitious collaboration between visual and media arts students from SAY Sí [San Antonio Youth Yes] and SAY Sí faculty alumni, Chad Gamez. The students have worked with the theme of “Love Letters to San Antonio” and express their love of the city through the letters. Being natives of San Antonio, the students have a unique view of growing up in the city and have each developed their personal love of certain areas, natural environments, architectural spaces, cultural and iconic imagery, and realities found throughout the city not easily accessible to other local or visiting citizens.

The following is a list of students, alumni, and instructors involved:
